Let’s Review Cornell Notes : How have you used the Cornell Note - Taking Strategy? OR... How might you use the Cornell Note-Taking Strategy?
Double-Entry Diary 2 vertical columns: Left: Information from text Right: Students’ personal reactions & connections Choose a label for the right column
Double-Entry Diary on Bacteria Text passage & page # This is important because... p. 325-”Heterotrophic bacteria are unable to make their own food, so they feed on plant and animal matter.” These bacteria get rid of waste, like dead plants and animals. Bacteria recycle unneeded stuff that would otherwise pile up on Earth.
Content/Process Notes 1.Two vertical columns: [L]“What I Learned...” [R] “What I Was Thinking...” 2.Follow up with a Paired Discussion 3.You’ll find an elaboration for both Double Entry Diaries and Content Process Notes on pgs. 79 – 81 in Buehl’s book.
Content/Process Notes: Hurricanes Text Code What I learned…What I was thinking… RIs a low pressure area with strong winds and heavy rain I remember a movie that featured a fishing boat in a hurricane, “The Perfect Storm.” ?Low pressureI am confused…what does this mean? QWinds can blow km/hI wonder what that speed would be in miles. VGreatest damage is from currents called storm surges which push walls of water inland I can really see this happening; the waves smashing on the shore, knocking over trees and buildings IHurricanes are similar to cyclones, with the wind spiraling towards the center It seems the author is saying that hurricanes are like ocean tornadoes. Q & ICenter is called the ‘eye’ of the storm, where there is no rain and almost no wind. I wonder why it’s called the eye. The ‘eye’ seems a safe area.
Recall GRR? Barb and Melissa have graciously agreed to model the written conversations for you. I’ve provided them with a short piece of text which they’ve both read. Because they’re accomplished writers, I’ve left the writing opportunity open to their own interpretation. Sit back a moment and watch a written conversation take place.
