To do this you should actively read and listen to what
others are saying.
1. Active reading leads to effective
down unfamiliar phrases, words and terms.
look up words an note the different
contexts of their meaning.
make comparisons between ideas in your
readings and view expressed in the class discussions.
frequently summarize the free
writing you do in class.
this means that you must take
careful notes on what you read, and weekly you must review those notes
and summarize their meaning.
2. Listening is the first step to
good note taking and that leads to better writing.
write down what other people are saying
and connect what you and they think after class with phrases or terms
conveying both your meaning and their meaning.
ask people politely to summarize the
importance of what they have just said.
3. Be sure to distinguish important
terms in the course and give examples.
