I don't know of any specific web site or resource how to teach this =
method. I learned it as a tutor in college. We were all required to =
learn how to use and explain it. Basically, the student folds a piece of =
paper into thirds. The first column is where the student found the =
information - page number, web site, etc. The second column is where the =
student writes the interesting or important fact. Example: Leonardo =
DaVinci painted the Last Supper. Then the third column is where the =
student writes a question about the notes written. Example: Who painted =
the Last Supper? This also helps students study for tests because the =
questions are right there for the students study.
I don't really give perameters in regards to questions. My students =
will only do what is asked of them and nothing more. However, I do go =
around and help them pull out information. That is the hardest part for =
them. (Go figure. No one else has taught them how to take notes.) If I =
want them to obtain specific inforamtion, I narrow the search topic. For =
instance, instead of saying Renaissance paintings, I may say paintings =
made a specific Renaissance artist. It seems to work so far. I guess you =
just need to gauge your class. As we both know, each class is different. =
I hope this helps.=20
