The purpose of this self-designed exhibit is to modify my note-taking skills and determine whether or not this will improve my grade and/or my study techniques with the notes.
Before new note taking process:
My current note taking process is on my computer. While my computer distracts me and I may browse from time to time on various websites during class, typing on my computer allows me to take the notes down more quickly.
New Note Process:
- Hand-written notes inside of my 3-ring binder
- Date and number of page in the upper right hand corner
- Title of notes
- Highlight/underline important topics and ideas
- Record lecture and fill in empty spaces if notes are missing
The new note-taking process listed above will be taken in my Philosophy class. However, I will continue to take notes on my computer in Microeconomics. The main objective of this exhibit is to compare grades in this class to determine which note-taking process is best for me.
