Cornell Notes could be used as a teaching guide or printable notes for students.
Cornell notes are a great way for students to learn how to take effective notes that can be used as a study guide later. I have used Cornell Notes with my advanced learners as well as my struggling readers. I do have to model and guide my struggling readers with their notes much more than with my advanced learners. However, the benefits are organization and a completed study guide for them to use at test time. Another benefit is that they may be completed on notebook paper, which most students have.
For students who have the “note-taking assistance” accommodation, I will print out a copy of the template rather than requiring them to use notebook paper. I also will “trade” a printed copy of my notes if they have shown effort in completing theirs.
I have typed out my set of Cornell Notes. These have been useful to me as I teach by giving me a “guide” of key points/vocabulary that I want to target. They have the added benefit of allowing me to print a set of notes for students who were absent or have an accommodation. This saves me a trip to the very temperamental copier…
I’ve included all of the above documents in a .pdf format as well as an editable .docx (Microsoft Word) format.
You can find a copy of a Cornell Notes template in my Cornell Notes Starter Kit. You can print out and copy the template for students’ use.
