How to Implement Note Sharing?

  1. In the middle of a class, ask students to view and compare notes with those sitting nearby.
  2. They need to identify gaps in the notes and explore why there are differences in the notes.

Why Share Notes?

The best note takers record more than 75% of critical ideas; an average note taker records 40% of important ideas; and first-year students record only 11%.
