The Split-Page Method of Note-Taking (aka the Cornell Method)
Have your child draw a horizontal line across the page two inches from the bottom. Then about two inches from the left side, she should draw a line from top down to the horizontal line. This splits the page into three sections: a narrow column, a wide column and a box on the bottom.
The wide column is where your child can write down the main points of the teacher’s lesson or what she’s reading. After taking those notes, your child can use the narrow column to note questions and key vocabulary. And in the box, she can write a summary of the lesson.
