1 Taking Notes 6 th Grade Skills Needed for Post-Secondary Success: Overview Microsoft, 2011

2 Discussion Tell me about reading for your classes. – How often do you read something for class and get to the end of the page and realize you have no idea what you just read? – What strategies do you know to help you read smarter? Tell me about taking notes in your classes. – How many of you look back at your notes after you take them? – How do you use your notes to study? – What note-taking techniques do you know?

3 Objective The purpose of today's lesson is to help you read smarter and to help you take worthwhile notes Microsoft, 2011

4 Pre-test What are the steps in SQ3R? What do you record in the columns for Q-Notes? How can you use SQ3R or Q-notes in your classes?

5 Reading Smarter: SQ3R S = Survey Q = Question R = Read R = Recite R = Review Microsoft, 2011

6 SQ3R Practice Directions: 1.Read the brief paragraph and complete the SQ3R notes on your own. 2.Pair up with a partner and discuss what you have written for each part of the SQ3R process.

7 Survey 1.First, I’ll look over, or survey, the article. – The headers and table tell me it’s about Oklahoma in the 1930’s, the dust bowl, farmers’ lives, and rainfall. What else can I learn from a quick survey of the passage?

8 Question 2.To help me focus on each section, I’ll turn the headers into questions. – What was Oklahoma like in the 1930’s? – What was the dust bowl? – What was a farmer’s life like in Oklahoma in the 1930’s? – How much rainfall did they have in Oklahoma in the 1930’s? Was this normal? What other questions did you have written down?

9 Read 3.Now I’ll read carefully to find the answers to my questions and record my answers. QuestionsAnswers What was Oklahoma like in the 1930’s? It sounds like it was dry and that caused problems for farmers and so probably others, too What was the dust bowl?Because there wasn’t much rain, wind blew dust everywhere What was a farmer’s life like in Oklahoma in the 1930’s? Farmers couldn’t farm because of the dry conditions How much rainfall did they have in Oklahoma in the 1930’s? Was this normal? They received inches from , about 4 inches less per year than they received from

10 Recite 4.I can recite, or say the most important ideas in each section in my own words. – In Oklahoma in the early 1930’s, a drought caused the soil to dry out and the wind blew the soil everywhere. They called this a dust bowl. Farmers could not farm because there was so little rain. In fact, there was about 4 inches less rain per year than in previous years.

11 Review 5.Were all my questions answered? I’ll review to find out. – All of my questions were answered. Reviewing is an ongoing process, so I can keep these notes to review regularly. – These notes may be helpful for completing an assignment or studying for a quiz or test.

12 Q-Notes Q-notes are two-column notes that can be used to study for quizzes and tests. Divide your paper in half vertically – In the left column you write questions. – In the right column you write notes that answer the questions. Q-Notes can be taken during class lectures, while reading, or to re- write notes you’ve already taken QuestionsNotes
