  2. 2. Keep in mind:• Each note card • Each note card must should deal with one include the source core idea, with number (from the information coming relevant bibliographic from one source. citation) and page• Each note card numbers or web-page should have a unique“tag,” a brief addresses as heading that defines appropriate. for you the topic of the card.
  3. 3. Types of Note Cards:• The content of your note • Bullet points cards can vary considerably. Cards may • Summaries be brief or extensive; you • Paraphrasing may use bullet points, incomplete or complete • Direct quotation sentences, tables or graphs—whatever seems • “Mixes” appropriate. Please avoid “continuation cards”!
  4. 4. Bullet Point Model:1846 Treaty between Cape Colony 3—pp. 26-27and the Griquas• Cape affirmed “absolute dominion” (26) of Adam Kok over the territory!• Territory would be divided into two sections, one where British could lease land, the other where Europeans would be excluded• A British officer would be appointed with responsibility for the behavior of British subjects in the territory
  5. 5. Summary Model:Mongolian Nomads respond to the end 6—pp. 128-138of CommunismUnder Communism, Mongolian nomads had a stable incomeand stable work habits; they also had remarkable access toWestern goods (jam from Germany, sugar from Russia). Thenomads had to adapt to new realities when Communism endedin 1991. They could decide how many sheep or cattle to raise,but they also had to market their goods themselves. Althoughthey no longer had as much access to a wide range of goods,they seemed to adapt fairly well. With their skill as herders,raising their own livestock, they did much better thanMongolians living in cities.
  6. 6. Paraphrasing model: the original“After becoming supreme ruler in the late 16th century,Tokugawa Ieyasu moved Japans capitol to Edo, (now knownas Tokyo) transforming the sleepy fishing village into thecountrys premier political and economic center. Ieyasu and hisheirs forced the countrys daimyo lords to finance the expansionof Edo, and to live in the city during part of every other year.The new construction of the city and the vast number ofsamurai in need of goods and pleasurable pursuits luredmerchants, craftsmen and entertainers from all over Japan, andby the 17th century, the population had surpassed a million,making Edo one of the largest cities in the world.”
  7. 7. Paraphrasing model: paraphrasedTokugawa Ieyasu and the growth 7—“Welcome to Edo”of Edo (Tokyo) http://www.pbs.org/empires/japan/enteredo.htmlThe Japanese emperor Tokugawa Ieyasu established Edo (nowTokyo) as Japan’s capital in the late 1500s. Japan’s noblewarriors, the samurai, were required to pay taxes to finance thebuilding of the city. Ieyasu and his successors required thesamurai to live in Edo for significant amounts of time, as well. Thepresence of so many powerful men drew artisans, shopkeepers,musicians, and entertainers from all over the country to the newcapital. Within one hundred years, Edo had become one of theworld’s most populous cities.
  8. 8. Direct Quote Model:Bono’s strategies for debt relief 4“‘I know how absurd it is to have a rock star talk about the World HealthOrganization or debt relief or HIV/AIDS in Africa,’ Bono says. But he alsoknows that no one else with his kind of access to media and money hastaken on the job. In an effort to keep the discussion serious and avoid theappearance of being just another rocker against bad things, he refrainsfrom treating Africa as an emotional issue. ‘We dont argue compassion,’he says. His argument is pragmatic, not preachy. ‘We put it in the mostcrass terms possible; we argue it as a financial and security issue forAmerica…. There are potentially another 10 Afghanistans in Africa, andit is cheaper by a factor of 100 to prevent the fires from happening than toput them out.’”
  9. 9. Mixed Model (Bono again):Bono’s strategies for debt relief 4Bono acknowledged “‘how absurd it is to have a rock star talkabout the World Health Organization or debt relief or HIV/AIDS inAfrica,’” but he thinks he has the access, the passion, and theapproach to get the job done. He has talked to conservatives whoare wary about the plan, and he has learned to avoid making hisplea “an emotional issue.” As he told a reporter from Time, “‘Wedont argue compassion…. We put it in the most crass termspossible; we argue it as a financial and security issue forAmerica…. There are potentially another 10 Afghanistans inAfrica, and it is cheaper by a factor of 100 to prevent the fires fromhappening than to put them out.’”
