My students come into freshman year not knowing how to take notes on their short stories or novels. I've developed a series of note taking handouts for them to develop their skills.

I've included the handout for one of these skill developers here and the notes that explains what I do and how you can modify them for your classroom for any story or novel.

It's very simply process to include notes for scaffolding for the students because it's something that we do as teachers everytime we make notes so I've just included the notes for them and then I begin to take them away.

The handout is editable for teachers to make appropriate for their class and for the material.

It includes 3 pages:
1 1-page handout
1 2-page set of instructions

I've made this for my 9th grade English class but this would be excellent for middle school up to 12th grade or higher, depending on how much you want to give them. Cornell notes and their variations are perfect for anyone and they way I've made my alterations to the format would really be appropriate for any age if you change the language.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
By the end of grade 9, read and comprehend literature, including stories, dramas, and poems, in the grades 9-10 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.By the end of grade 10, read and comprehend literature, including stories, dramas, and poems, at the high end of the grades 9-10 text complexity band independently and proficiently.
Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare).
Analyze the representation of a subject or a key scene in two different artistic mediums, including what is emphasized or absent in each treatment (e.g., Auden’s “Musée des Beaux Arts” and Breughel’s Landscape with the Fall of Icarus).
Analyze a particular point of view or cultural experience reflected in a work of literature from outside the United States, drawing on a wide reading of world literature.
Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure a text, order events within it (e.g., parallel plots), and manipulate time (e.g., pacing, flashbacks) create such effects as mystery, tension, or surprise.
