  • 9. Beginning Note taking Students observe or read information on a topic and then draw what they have learned. Using only pictures they can not copy out of the book.
  • 10. Note taking continued • Develop a set of questions that require short one or two word answers. Students then read through books, magazines, or internet sites provided by the teacher to find and record the answers to each question.
  • 11. Next step. . . • Putting it altogether in an easy to use format. I use IIM, Independent Investigation Methods, developed by Cindy Nottage and Virginia Morse.
