Notetaking Skills

Our Notetaking Skills lesson plan helps students develop their notetaking skills in order to be better organized. Students practice paraphrasing text and organizing their notes during this lesson.

Our Notetaking Skills lesson plan helps students develop summarizing, paraphrasing, and organizational skills. These skills are useful for reading in the content areas, completing research, and synthesizing and applying these skills to create well-written, focused, and organized pieces of writing. In this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively to summarize a given text. Students are also asked to independently identify key elements from a story using their new notetaking skills.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to use notetaking strategies to summarize key information from texts, organize key information and details through color coding, and organize information in graphic organizers to increase comprehension of key facts and details.
