Think about it--do you ever sleep that long? On this site, you will find over 75 articles spanning over 23,000 words all geared to one goal: helping you study more effectively. A teacher and founding member of the Lansdowne Centre, Ms. Give them all a try for free for 30 days. After 30 Days, you can continue to use one color highlighter and can collect and clear highlights. Now that you understand the reason for taking notes, let�s learn how your note taking can become effective.� This section will be broken into three parts; the first section will cover a range of general note taking tips, the next will deal with taking effective notes from reading material, and the last will deal with taking effective notes from lectures.�� It is important to determine which pieces of information in a lecture or reading are important and which pieces are not.� The best way to do this is to be critical when you read or listen.� Ask yourself if the information you�re hearing is IMPORTANT, RELEVANT, and CREDIBLE.� In other words, does the information demonstrate a major point, does it relate to the subject matter, and is it believable or supported?� When writing down notes, try to distinguish between facts, opinions, and examples.� It is important to write down relevant facts.� Facts are �true� statements that should be supported by research or evidence.� It is also important to write down important, relevant, educated opinions.� For example, if the lecturer is giving a lecture that compares the ideas of different theorists, it would be important to write down a summary of each theorist�s opinion in your notes.� Lecturers and authors use examples to help explain difficult concepts and to maintain your interest.� While you might find the example interesting, it is not important to write down all the examples.� You may like to write a reference to an example that was particularly interesting or as a means of reminding you to do more research in a particular area.� Rather than relying on the examples that the lecturer or author provides, when reviewing your notes, try to think of your own examples.� When reading or listening, don�t write out notes word for word. �Notes should not be an exact copy of the lecture or reading.� They should be a summary of the main ideas and should be used to help jog your memory.� Use font, colour and size to draw attention to important points.� For example, you might like to use a different colour pen to write down facts, opinions, and examples.� You might use different writing sizes to indicate main points as being separate from supporting evidence.

Also, the better students become at reflecting on their prior knowledge, the more active they become in the learning process.
