All learners take in information differently. Note-taking templates can be helpful tools for organizing your learning. Within this section, you will be introduced to three styles of note-taking templates.
After reading the different descriptions of note-taking styles below, it will be up to you to decide which style of notes you would prefer to utilize.
Styles of Note-Taking:
1. Charting Notes
2. Cornell Notes
3. Mind Mapping
4. Fill in the Blank
Each note-taking style page contains guided notes for the different sections of Essential Knowledge that you can download from the ‘Downloadable Files’ section.
There are 6 components of the charting notes: main topic, learning objective/outcome, topic columns, idea boxes, key vocabulary boxes, and picture box.
You can access Charting note-taking templates for each section of Essential Knowledge by downloading the corresponding files from the ‘Downloadable Files’ section below.
