Reflection: High Quality Task Introduction to Persuasive Appeals - Section 4: Organize our notes


In the last few years, I've realized that I don't ask students to evaluate their learning enough.  Today, I asked them to not only evaluate what they learned, but to organize it.  I loved this step! I watched students look at their notes and some of them realized that they hadn't taken very good ones and/or they aren't very organized.  One student actually told me that he didn't realize his handwriting was  as bad as it was.  Numerous other students commented that they didn't realize how unorganized their notes were.  We had a great class discussion about note taking in college and how advantageous it would be to always take the time to evaluate their own notes/annotations and organize them.
