Mr. McDonough has spent the last few class periods introducing, demonstrating, practicing, and reviewing his note-taking system, Cornell Notes. This is a very simple system of thinking while we read. We simply look for main ideas, or ask questions while we read, and then search for the supporting details or answers. Below is an example of the note sheets, followed by a blank template to use.
Thanks to this site for the Cornell Note Sheet http://msmcdushistory.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/44832286/Cornell%20Notes%20Template.pdf
