Reflection: Staircase of Complexity Peer Editing-What is it? - Section 3: Guided Practice


One goal I had for the students by the end of the year was to be able to take notes on their own.  To identify what was important and paraphrase notes into their own words.  However, this particular group of students are not there yet.  They still struggle with understanding what is important to write down and how to organize their notes. 

To help them out, I provided them with the guided notes page.  The students really enjoy taking notes using this method and seem to feel more confident.  It really also allows to focus more on the content verses them focusing on just writing.  I am still looking for that magic wand that will help me understand to better transition my students to independently take notes.
