US Grade 7 - 9
Beginner - Intermediate Level
  • Students will be able to closely read difficult texts for understanding and memorization by completing Cornell Notes. Students will be able to identify text features while reading and taking notes on difficult text for a better understanding.
I have taught Cornell Notes my entire professional career. I am also trained in AVID reading strategies and am trained as an AP Language and Composition teacher. Cornell Notes have been shown to increase understanding and memorization of materials. It is a skill that can be used in any school subject. I teach two other note-taking classes on Outschool and they can both be found here!
