This is a note-taking strategy that I came up with, designed, and started using this year. It’s what I called a One-Page Summary, and it’s a one page notes template designed to cover ONE topic, chapter, or section at a time. Because it’s one page only, I focus only on the pertinent information that the students must absolutely walk away knowing.
This is a one-page summary to cover the main details about what the Crusades were, the major goals of the crusades, and important details about the four major wars.
Notes also sold as a power point I sell separately called: World History: Chapter 14, Section 1 Church Reform/Crusades Notes Powerpoint
World History: Introduction to Hinduism and Buddhism
IMPORTANT: This needs to be printed on LEGAL SIZED PAPER [8.4X14]
It helps students to identify the main points.
It helps students to know exactly what they need to read, learn and study.
It helps students to differentiate between important details and minor details.
It helps students to better summarize large texts.
It helps enhance students ability to read maps if a map activity is included
It helps the more visual students to remember the information.
This is based on Chapter 14, Formation of Western Europe,Section 1:CHURCH REFORM AND THE CRUSADES from the World History: Patterns of Interaction Textbook.
