https://samarnhpang.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/theories-in-learning.pdf Student Reflections Note taking is far more difficult in college than in high school. The note-taking strategy that I learned in high school would be inappropriate and ineffective if used in a college course. High school teachers often spoon-fed the notes and emphasized what was what the specific main points and supporting details were. Key points often were written on the board, were illustrated in worksheets, and repeated many times. In addition, teachers would interact regularly with students while lecturing, allowing them to ask questions freely while emphasizing important information.
#### In college, taking notes requires more critical thinking and concentration. Good listening skills are essential for effective note taking because you have to determine the main points for yourself. Professors often move through a lecture with lightening speed, forcing important for you in the lecture. You were guided very thoroughly on you to determine key points quickly. LEARNING FROM LECTURES My note-taking strategies were very poor in high school. I would write down everything that the teacher said and that the teacher wrote on the board. I thought that if I got everything written down on my the notes were about. At least I wrote all the information down! My notes were very disorganized, and I had no idea of the main purpose meaning of the information I wrote.
#### In high school, my notes were very confusing to me. I would just write down whatever I felt like at the time. My notes had very little structure to them. They would consist of very fragmented thoughts. When trying to review them for tests, I had a very hard time trying date my notes to know when a particular topic was discussed in class. At the time when I was in high school, I thought that my notes were paper, it would be easier for me to study, even if I did not know what or idea of my notes. Everything appeared to be thrown together, and it was very difficult to return to my notes, because I didn’t know where to find certain things, and sometimes I really didn’t know the to figure out what went on in that particular lecture. I wouldn’t even just fine. I now look back on them, and they didn’t do the job.
