Notetaking 101

As we begin the American Revolution, we’re also reviewing how to take notes via outlines.  It’s a very simple process we use, organize information into sections.  Of course, history isn’t so compartmentalized, but this is a good way to basically organize new and old information.  Here is an example of an outline that we created together in class.

For homework – students need to read and outline a particular section.  We’re reviewing the events leading up to the American Revolution, so each group will have a section.  It is as follows:

  1. Group 1 reads and outlines pages 93-97
  2. Group 2 = 102-07
  3. Group 3 = 108-12
  4. Group 4 = 113-19
  5. Group 5 = 125-30
