  • Note taking is an important skill to develop– focus on your thesis statement (it should not be too broad- give counterpoints/argument)
  • Ask questions what I want to know? As your research leads you to the answers write them on the legs.
  • The ladder represents the steps to for note taking- starting with direct quotes (cut & paste), paraphrasing and summarizing the closer you are to the ground the closer you are to the original text.
  • Quotations are word for word copies (copy and paste) So if you have 100 sentences in your paper only 10 should be direct quotes.
  • When paraphrasing you must change the vocabulary and the order of ideas. It is a detailed restatement focusing on one topic.
  • Information that is common knowledge does not need to be cited.
  • An outline is the framework or skeleton of your paper
