Note taking is an essential skill students need to be successful. Here, Deana Hippie, an experienced teacher, has developed clear, research-based lessons that really work. Deana demonstrates the hierarchical structure of expository text (main ideas supported by specific details). Her lessons show how to note similarities and differences in ideas and how to look for clues about important words in a sentence or paragraph. Kids learn how to take notes during class discussion and while they're reading a text. The active, hands-on activities support all kinds of learners, and they are scaffolded in a gradual release model so students develop the independence they need.
