How do you handle note taking for classes? Do you make them start from scratch? Do you give them an outline? Do you print off your Powerpoint slides? Most of my kids are just absolutely awful at taking notes. I ask them to do it outside of class because all the research seems to point to the fact that students should not be taking notes when you are teaching. However none of mys students take the notes or they take too many notes or the wrong notes. We had PD today on Common Core and the presenter recommended Cornell (two column) notes. But I have no idea what this would look like in a math classroom. Then once the students take the notes what do you let the students do with them? When can they use them?
