Cornell or two column notes are a great way to improve metacognition as well as organizational skills. Notes include charts, graphs, photographs, primary sources, colored detail, vocabulary and definitions depending on the section. My Cornell notes are prefect for in class presentations, handouts to be used to complete Venn diagrams or flow charts, and vary depending on the particular section.
