Who doesn't love Cornell Notes?! When my school went 1:1 with Chromebooks last year, I converted everything to digital files. This product includes a great .pdf guided notes chart template as well as super easy to use Google Doc version that can be easily shared with your students for digital notes! The best thing about using the Google Doc version is that it can be shared with students once and then be copied by them as many times as needed after. I have my students make and fill out a new copy every time they read a new section in our class novels. It also works really well with tough short stories!
The chart has four sections that include detailed descriptions/directions in each. They are as follows:
-Survey-summarizing what was read
-Questions/Key Terms and Phrases- a space to record questions that arise while reading/a place to record important words/phrases read
-Answers/Comments/Notes- I like to have students fill this section out after we read and discuss a section. This is a good place to record any answers to their questions or a place they can record important tidbits from that discussion.
-Double Check- Students use this box to collaborate with a partner and discuss the rest of their notes page and what they read. They record their partner's understanding or things they learned from their partner in this box.
