WS 1.3 Initial Instruction AMERICA Note-Taking
WS 1.3 Organization and Focus: use strategies of note-taking, outlining, and summarizing to impose structure on composition drafts. outlining, and summarizing to impose structure on composition drafts
Note-Taking Purpose: Knowing which facts to record and how to organize them is a skill that you can use when you research any topic Defined: A way to collect information from sources
Notes Types of Note-Taking
Notes Explained: Writing down only the main ideas and supporting details Taking down complete sentences is not necessary Best used when capturing the essential elements of the lecture or presentation is desired
Outlining Types of Note-Taking
Outlining Explained: Arranging main ideas and supporting details in a logical order Uses Roman numerals for the main ideas Uses capital letters for subtopics Uses Arabic numerals for the details Effective method of structuring draft before writing
Paraphrasing Types of Note-Taking
Paraphrasing Explained: Using your own words to restate someone elses ideas Used often to replace quotations and dialogue to clarify text When using cards for research, effective way of organizing ideas into categories by sorting cards by main ideas
Summarizing Types of Note-Taking
Summarizing Explained: Condensing the text to include the most important information Must include the main ideas and the most important details Can be written from an outline Summarizing is capturing the essential ideas of the passage, as opposed to re-telling the whole passage.
Tips Types of Note-Taking
Tips Explained: Skim the article or articles Use any text organizers to locate and organize information Pay special attention to headings Headings can help distinguish main ideas from supporting details
Sample Text Note-Taking Examples
Sample Text Advances in Astronomy In 1543 an astronomer published a book that contradicted what a Greek authority had written. Many historians think the publication of this book marks the beginning of the Scientific Revolution.
Sample Text Nicolaus Copernicus The book thought to have marked the beginning of the Scientific Revolution was written by a Polish astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus. His 1543 book was called On the Revolution of the Celestial Spheres.
Sample Text Copernicus was familiar with Ptolemys theories and writings. Ptolemy had written that the earth was the center of the universe and that the sun and other planets orbited, or circled around, the earth. For 1,400 years, people accepted this belief as fact.
Sample Text Copernicus tried a different explanation for what he observed in the sky. Copernicus practiced science. He proposed that the sun was the center of the universe, and that the planets, including earth, orbited it, making the concept much simpler. Rather than trying to make his observation fit the old theory, he introduced a new, different theory, thus initiating the Scientific Revolution.
Notes Note-Taking Examples
Notes Advances in astronomy 1543 – book contradicts Greek authority Book started the Scientific Revolution Written by Nicolaus Copernicus On the Revolution of the Celestial Spheres Earth center of universe, not sun Went against Ptolemy (Greek astronomer) New, different theory credited with starting Scientific Revolution
Outlining Note-Taking Examples
Outlining I.Advances in Astronomy A.Nicolaus Copernicus 1. Wrote a book, On the Revolution of the Celestial Spheres, which contradicted Ptolemys theory of the earth as the center of the universe. 2. His theory proposed the sun as the center of the universe, with the planets, including earth, orbiting around it. 3.His different theory initiated the Scientific Revolution
Paraphrasing Note-Taking Examples
Paraphrasing Until 1543, people still accepted the Greek astronomers, Ptolemys, explanation of the movement of planets and the sun. Nicolaus Copernicus, though, changed that with the introduction of his book On the Revolution of the Celestial Spheres. Rather than the earth as the center of the universe, as previously believed, Copernicus proposed the sun as the center. Not only did this new and different theory start advances in astronomy, it founded the Scientific Revolution.
Summarizing Note-Taking Examples
Summarizing Advances in astronomy began in 1543 with a book, On the Revolution of the Celestial Spheres by Nicholas Copernicus, which contradicted Greek authority, primarily Ptolemy, placing the sun at the center of the universe rather than the earth, thus launching the Scientific Revolution.
