Effective Notetaking

No matter what note-taking technique you use, these are important guidelines to follow:

  • Develop, modify, then stick to a strategy that works for you.
  • Read for understanding.
  • Paraphrase! (That's how you know you understand.)
  • Be able to trace every single idea in your notes to its source.
  • Write just enough - not so much that it's like reading the original all over again, not so little that you don't know what it means later.
  • Abbreviations, symbols, and diagrams are great, as long as you'll remember what they mean.

Broad general reading to generate ideas

Websites to stretch your brain.  Browse, read, and let your mind wander.

----------------------------------------------

Of course you can use Google, Google Scholar and Google Books, but try other search engines as well.

Thanks to Katie Day at the United World College of South East Asia for her help generating much of this list.
