As you study the material use active reading strategies and take notes using the Cronell Note taking system. Your Cornell notes should reflect all course objectives as well as the active reading strategies that you employed.
- Active Reading Strategies are reviewed in this VIDEO.
- You can review the instructions for Cornell notes method in this Video.
The assignment may be completed in only Microsoft word or a scanned pdf version of your hand written work. Templates for both documents are provided.
