2 Daylight Saving Time Most western nations advance the clock ahead one hour during the summer months. We call this period Daylight Saving Time. Benjamin Franklin originally suggested the idea. He wanted to take advantage of the additional daylight time in the summer when many people were sleeping. The United States temporarily adopted Daylight Saving Time in America was fighting World War I, and the additional hour of daylight was believed to save fuel. The war ended, so the national experiment lasted only one year, but many states continued to observe Daylight Saving Time on their own. Congress set the clocks ahead again in 1942 during the Second World War, and again during an energy shortage in In addition to energy savings, many retail business owners favor Daylight Saving Time because it allows more daylight hours for shopping. There is also some evidence that suggests that additional daylight contributes to fewer automobile accidents and a decrease in violent crime. In the United States, every state but Hawaii and Arizona observes Daylight Saving Time from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. Hawaii is closer to the equator than the other states, and since the amount of daylight does not vary much, the Hawaiians feel Daylight Saving Time is unnecessary. Summer temperatures in Arizona often reach 100o, so lawmakers in the Grand Canyon State decided it would be better to end the day early so Arizonians could enjoy an extra hour of cooler evening weather in the summer.

3 Pair Share Instructions … 1.Share your notes with a partner. 2.Did you use any “short-cuts” in your note taking? Share these with your partner. 3.How can we use “short-cuts” to improve our note taking skills? 4.Don’t know any? Let’s see … can you read the next slide?

4 Where are you now? What are you doing? Meet four coffee as soon as possible? What about pizza? Please? Oh by the way … thank goodness its Friday! Enough said! Laugh out loud Talk to you later best friend forever! Ta-ta for now because it’s time to go! Thanks! WRUN … WRUD … M4C ASAP? WHAT BOUT P-ZA PLZ? OBTW … TGIF! NUFF LOL TLK2ULA8R BFF TTFN B/C TTG THX Can you read the following? Translation … Let’s try the next slide!

5 I cnduo't bvleiee taht I culod aulaclty uesdtannrd waht I was rdnaieg. Unisg the icndeblire pweor of the hmuan mnid, aocdcrnig to rseecrah at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mttaer in waht oderr the lterets in a wrod are, the olny irpoamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rhgit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whoutit a pboerlm. Tihs is bucseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey ltteer by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Aaznmig, huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghhuot slelinpg was ipmorantt! See if yuor fdreins can raed tihs too. What can we learn from this? In nte tking, we can lve out some ltrs & stl undrstd the nts we’ve tkn.

6 So … how can we take what we’ve learned and apply it to note taking skills? Don’t write every word! Write KEY words only!! (leave out the “little” words such as “the”, “is”, “a” etc.) Don’t spell entire words!! Use abbreviations! Use your own form of short-hand (b/c = because … w/o = without)! Draw symbols (like math symbols … )! Use bullets! Go over your notes and rewrite your notes as soon as possible! Let’s try one more time! Listen to the paragraph again and take notes again! Let’s see how you do this time!

7 Don’t forget the Cornell Note Taking Strategy Main Idea Notes Notes Let’s try again … Take notes again using the Collins note taking graphic organizer & the short cuts we’ve learned!

9 Pair Share Instructions … 1.Share your notes with a partner. 2.Did you use any “short-cuts” in your note taking? Share these with your partner. 3.Share your BEST short-cuts with the class. 4.Let’s look at an example …
