As I was researching Cornell Doodle Notes, I found Sunrise Science. There is an awesome Article available on her blog with tips for how to use Cornell Doodle Notes.
Please check it out for some amazing information and strategies to use these in your classroom this year!
If you have subscribed to my blog for any amount of time, then you know that I love doodle notes. I have also written about using Cornell notes as well. Toward the end of the year, I stumbled across the best of both of these note-taking methods = CORNELL DOODLE NOTES!
Basically, you combine the organization of Cornell notes with the graphic organization of doodle notes. Over the summer I have been converting a lot of my notes into this style of note-taking.
Here are a couple of examples of notes that I’ve created so far:
From my BIG BANG THEORY Notes –
From my WHERE WE ARE IN THE UNIVERSE Notes –
I love that I can combine graphics and notes in such a well-organized way. I cannot wait to use these with my students! Have you thought of any new ideas this summer?
As I was searching through new ways to complete notes with my students I stumbled across cornell notes. I had never used them as a student, but they looked pretty interesting. SO, I decided to give them a try and I love them. For topics when I don’t have doodle notes or I just need to change things up – I pull out cornell notes.
What are Cornell Notes?
Basically it is a way to organize notes into one-two pages of condensed information. On one side you put key vocabulary, questions or things you want to pull out from the main ideas. Then, on the second side – you put your main ideas. At the bottom there is a space for a summary – Yay! Great way to get students to reflect on their learning!
An Example of My Cornell Notes:
These are notes that I made to go along with our textbook. We have super old textbooks, but they still have some good information and diagrams. I liked these because I added space for students to draw their own diagrams.
How do I make my Cornell Notes?
I use an awesome template that I found for FREE on TpT. I am adding a photo-link below. It is super easy to use and input your own information!
