    I am teaching my students different styles of taking notes that they could use in college. I teach tenth grade World Civilization. I have already used basic outlines, picture notes, illustration notes, venn diagrams, concept maps, timeline notes, and other graphic organizers. Any other ideas? Thanks!

    I use cornell notes with my classes, and most of my PowerPoint lectures are formatted in that style. I teach the same subject you do, so perhaps this will be helpful.... If you'd like an example, I have one uploaded: Agricultural Revolution PPT

    How about T charts and 4 boxes? That's what we call them anyway. T charts list headings/questions on the left and details/answers on the right alongside corresponding headings/questions. 4 boxes is simply a square quartered off into boxes. Students come up with four big ideas related to the topic and list details about or illustrate the important information. i.e. The topic is Aztec civilization. 4 boxes could be for agriculture, religion, military, Technoctilan. I may have misspelled the name of that city.
