Taking Notes

Taking notes is part of many assignments, especially in History/Social Studies and Science.

You’ll also want to save your notes to use for studying for any tests. Studies prove that students that take written notes using paper and pencil remember more and perform better on tests.

Below are resources and information about different note-taking methods. You can also use the Take Notes app in your account if you prefer to take digital notes. Use the method that works best for you. Regardless of which method you use, we recommend adding the assignment Day # (such as Day 5), the date, and course name to your notes.
