Reflection: Relevance Elements of Literature Review: Using Cornell Notes - Section 2: Instructional Input/Guided Practice


I personally have seen a great deal of success among my students as they utilize the Cornell note-taking process. I also found such success when I was a student as well. I like to share my own personal experience with this format in order to help them buy into its value and potential outcomes. By sharing my own experience, I help the students to determine the relevance of the process. It is important to have the students buy-in as soon as possible as this will help them to embrace and fully engage in the process as we move forward.
