    I'm looking for some new note taking strategies. I use Cornell Notes quite often, but I have about a week's worth of lectures coming up, and I know my students will shoot me if they have to do Cornell Notes for the entire thing.

    I. I was thinking something along the outline route
    A. where you format your notes
    i. to look like this.

    I am using a lesson from last year where I basically had students fill in the blanks. Granted, they are 6th graders, and don't have the worlds best note taking skills, but I feel as if I am short changing them if I do fill in the blank, but if I have them write too much, it will take for ever

    If your lectures are on powerpoint slides - you can print out "handout" sheets of the slides (I think up to 6 slides per page). I've gone back through my slides and made a "notes" version by taking out key words and replacing them with blanks for the kids to fill in as the appropriate slide comes up. They can also add short notes in the margins then for what you add to it for the lecture.
