Here are two examples of Cornell Notes. The math example on the left would probably make a grade of about a 50 for your Cornell Note check in AVID. Cornell Notes are major grades in AVID. Every item needs to be complete. The math example is incomplete at the top. Also, even though the notes part looks complete, there is no evidence (highlighting, underlining, circles, etc...) that the notes have been used to study.
This is the "notes" section. This is where you take notes during class. Also, the topic, name, date, EQ, etc...should be filled in during class. The questions and summary sections are completed after class, that evening, the next day, etc...
The "Questions" part is done when you are studying/reviewing the notes. Think of questions a teacher might have on a test. For each "chunk" or part of the notes, there should be at least one question. The question strip can then be folded over to help you study.
The "Summary" is also done when studying/reviewing the notes. If someone were absent in class, your summary should explain the lesson you did that day. For each question on the left, there should be a sentence in the summary that answers it. The summary is like a mini skirt - short and covers the important parts. It is not a reflection about how you feel about the lesson.
After completing the questions and summary, go through the notes to highlight important information, put question marks by things you don't understand, circle key terms, put stars by possible test questions. Going back through the notes to complete the questions, summaries, and highlighting gives you several repetitions which will help you learn/remember the material. These English notes would probably make an A in AVID.
