  • When I’m taking a message, should I write down every word? Let’s try and answer the questions who, what, when, where.
  • Do you write down every word?
    No, you don’t need to. You should try and make notes that answer the questions who, what, when, where.
  • Taking notes when you are researching is the same process. You have to find the key information that answers your research question. We’re going to read this encyclopedia entry on the cassowary.
    Research question: What does the Cassowary look like?? We need to underline or highlight any information that answers that question.
    Ask students to read two sentences. What should I underline? (Students follow along and underline their handout)
  • Read two more sentences. What should I underline?
  • Read two more sentences. What should I underline?
  • Look at just your underlined sentences. Now write notes on the information that you read. These notes do not have to be complete sentences. Notes should answer research question. Right now, we’re writing our notes as a bulleted list. Use your correct spelling. This will be important when you build a paragraph, and put the info into your own words, using multiple sources.
    What should I write for notes for the first underlined sentence? [Write student notes on board]
  • These are my notes from one source. Before I write a paragraph about what the cassowary looks like, I’ll want to look at more than one source (article, book, website, etc.)
  • It’s your turn. Underline keywords that answer our question, “What do emus look like?” Write down your notes. These are keywords and phrases, not sentences. We will reconvene to write our notes together. Exemplar:
  • If time, review citations and have students fill out citation worksheet.
