It is Time to Learn to Take Effective Notes!

The Cornell note taking method is recommended for taking notes while you go through your lessons in Compass. Did you know writing information down helps you remember it? Taking notes not only can help you retain the information, it provides you with you with information to refer to when studying for tests and quizzes?

Students in fourth grade and above should begin to take notes in their classes as this skill becomes very important in the older grades. Parents, please encourage your child to take notes and use notes every day as part of their learning!


Below are links to important note taking tips and videos!
