Reflection: Student Ownership Note-taking: Paraphrase, Summary, and Direct Quotes - Section 2: Directed Freewriting


I think it is important for students to reflect upon their note-taking strategies; to self-assess their abilities, identifying their strengths and challenges; and to share their findings with me.  I like to share my learning strategies with students, those I used in high school, college, and graduate school and how they worked for me.  In this way, they can draw upon and learn from my experiences with complex texts and tasks.  I also like to share how I approach note-taking from a career standpoint, and how it best works for me in the digital world with online and face-to-face presentations.  This lets students understand relevance for acquiring effective learning strategies for college and career readiness.
