Cornell style note taking sheet

Cornell style note taking sheet

(0)
This is a modified version of a note taking scaffold based around the Cornell model. Students should initially complete the title and objectives. They should then add processed information into the main notes section - this can be in the form of prose, bullet points or even mind maps. Simultaneously they should add key terminology and most importantly fill in the left hand column. This is a reflective section, basically is a record of their inner voice. After the note taking is complete then students should write a short summary (3-4 sentences) and then do the M.I.P. M.I.P. stands for most important point - this should be no more than 3 words (ideally 1). This scaffold can be used with any subject, any age and for any form of input; e.g. video, teacher talk, written information, Internet research.

This can be used to test students' retention of key words from their glossaries. This is best used as a starter to the lesson. 5 key words or phrases can be read from the appropriate glossary. Sheets can be collected in and the words marked for spelling. The definitions can be given a mark out of 2. Once returned the students can check and correct their answers and evaluate their performance using the scaffolded questions. This resource can be used with any of the glossaries... KS3 Year 7, KS3 Year 8, KS3 Year 9, GCSE Biology, GCSE Chemistry, GCSE Physics, AS Biology or A2 Biology. This also works well when used regularly in conjunction with Quick quiz templates. Best printed A4, 2 per side and back to back. They can then be cut in half. If folded the section including name and date can then be stuck down into exercise books at a later stage. (Far quicker to mark these loose rather than pre-stuck into books!)

WIKI - What I know initially - scaffold for student note taking

WIKI - What I know initially - scaffold for student note taking

(0)
This is a scaffold for students to make notes about any particular topic. Works well if the initial ideas section is first completed before being taught. The remaining sections are then filled in during and/or after they have been taught the topic. I have used this with Y7 through to Y13 primarily with science, however, it could be used with any subject and any age range.

Alternatively students can use the cards to quiz each other in groups of four or place cards down on the table and only turn over if they can either recall the definition or the word corresponding to the information on the reverse.

SOLO HOT maps - for Biology

SOLO HOT maps - for Biology

(0)
Variety of SOLO style flow charts (sequencing, Compare and Contrast, Describe). Mainly based on Biology concepts but could easily be adapted for any other subject. Perfect for scaffolding students' learning and reaching those ever more challenging higher order thinking skills. Many of the resources are best printed back to back (and often A3). These have been used very successfully with Y7-13 and also staff training. Even if you are not familiar with SOLO taxonomy they are still very useful tools to encourage higher order thinking and consequently the holy grail of challenge!

OHM work (online homework monitoring)

OHM work (online homework monitoring)

(5)
These are best printed 2 per side and double sided - to give A5 size sheets. These are for giving students when they have online (self marked) pieces of homework. Often there is no evidence of these other than a simple percentage. These sheets provide students with an opportunity to evaluate their progress and also for parents to write a comment. I would perhaps use these 2 or 3 times a half term (rather than every piece of homework). These can be adapted for other online homeworks or KS4. As usual any feedback is welcome.
Team roles and responsibilities

Team roles and responsibilities

(4)
I have this resource printed and displayed in my classroom. Students are allocated teams as part of a seating plan - they are each given a number 1-4. Each number is then allocated a role. Teams move tables each lesson (indicated by a box with their team name on it). Teams are re-organised every half term. Roles and numbers are also changed half termly - as many students may retain the same number but in a different team! Hope that all makes sense. I will probably put together a help sheet to go with this resource at some point. Please let me know how useful you find these.
