Trying out Cornell notes for literature revision
I’ve been pretty bad at taking notes my whole life. I usually don’t write stuff down even though I keep forcing my body to do so.
So here I am at home, trying out the Cornell note taking method. This is because I wanted to be able to learn about the narrative voices used in Frankenstein. But I didn’t know how to learn it. All I knew was that hey, this is note taking, and that I can use the internet too.
As you can see on the top right side, it took me 1h and 7 minutes to complete this. And as you can also see, it is not actually finished. I’ve only done the note section although I need to do the cue section and the summary section.
I found it bizarre to do this note taking method because..
1) Not used to note taking anyway
2) I felt like I wasn’t really thinking before writing stuff down
3) Tbh, just overall confusion?
While I was doing the note taking, I just looked at notes from class (handouts that I didn’t fill in much, internet, etc. Then, I wrote stuff down that I kind of understood.
13 mins later....
Here’s the summary for the Cornell notes!
How was it?:
Well, I didn't do much thinking (probably doing this wrong) and I felt like maybe I should've done some other study methods before this. I felt as though this could be useful for trying to revise but not to learn stuff for the "first time" I think? I'm not so sure though.
Anyways, it's good that I've started trying stuff out.
