Are you finding that your students need support in developing their research skills? This note-taking template is designed to teach students the process of using a source for research, including:
1. Correctly citing a source.
2. Taking notes on a source, based on research questions.
3. Organizing and processing information from a source. Connecting that information to the expectations of the research project.
4. Evaluating the reliability and helpfulness of a source.
No more cutting and pasting information from online sources onto PowerPoints and calling it research!
I designed this product based on my experiences and training as an AVID Elective teacher--thus, it emphasizes using Cornell Notes as a learning process, not a product. I include detailed information on how I use these Cornell Notes in my own classroom, including the research steps I deliberately and consciously teach my students with this product.
And, while I designed this product for use in my High School History classroom, it is appropriate for use in ANY content area in both Middle and High School.
Included in this download:
- The Research Cornell Notes template.
- Teacher directions for Research Cornell Notes, including a detailed explanation of how I use these notes in my own classroom, along with tips based on my own experiences.
Additionally, if you would like to see how I use these notes with specific projects, you might want to check out the following products on the High School History Teacher's Toolbox:
