Seats at tables 1-5

  • Yesterday we focused on this- the organize
  • SLT– I can use Cornell Notes to effectively capture, evaluate and organize relevant information from a text.
  • Today we are getting into the evaluate
  • The way to evaluate your notes, and your mind, is with The Cue Column$.

 Mini-Lesson-

Here is what CUE words do:

  • Cue words help us organize and evaluate our notes.
  • Organize by showing us what category each note is in.
  • Evaluate by classifying each note into a category.

Example-

without cue words-

Refusing to work meant arrest under vagrancy laws and forced labor under the state’s penal system.

The authorities seized the land. They seized the buggy. They took the cows, hogs, and mules. And so for the upkeep of separate but equal, the entire Ross family was reduced to sharecropping.

With Cue Words!

Question- So what do the words mean?

SLT- I can define cue words for my Cornell Notes, and effectively use them in my note taking.

  • Note-
  • Question-
  • Recite-
  • Review-
  • Reflect-
  • Vocabulary-

Activity – have a discussion in your groups in which you:

  • get a formal definition for your cue word
  • modify that definition so that it makes sense for our note taking purposes.

Example- vocabulary in the dictionary

THEN:

  • Which definition makes the most sense for our CUE Column? How do I know this?
  • What do we have to do to modify/change the definition to make sense for us?

Groups Share Out Your Definition and your Process for coming to this definition. What were some of difficulties of coming to a definition?

Homework-

  • Reorganize your cue column from Chapter 1 to see if it makes sense.
  • There will be an open Note Quiz on Chapter 1 tomorrow.
  • Make sure you’ve finished Chapter 1 of our grapple text and Cornell Notes.

Supplementary-

  • Practice note taking by reading 1 article from the #validus and filling starting a Cornell Notes for it in your notebook.
