What is one of the most critical skills that can make or break a student’s ability to succeed in academic pursuits? Note taking! This course focuses on note taking basics – how to take and then utilize notes for effective learning. Some forms of note taking covered include: t-charts, bullet points, Cornell notes, picture/doodle notes, idea charts and webs, mind maps, and summaries.  Taking notes based on lectures, textbooks, literature, and research are covered. Students will practice marking up and annotating works and using proper citations. They will explore and practice many types of note taking skills in order to develop an effective and individualized approach that will work best for themselves. This course is practical, accessible, and applicable to any area of study, and homework will be primarily open-ended, so students can practice the skills taught in their other courses and turn in those notes for credit.   Materials are teacher provided.

How to Register

To register for a class, you will click on the Register button. Fill out the registration form that pops up. You will fill out one form per student. Upon receipt of your form, the registrar will send you an invoice payable by PayPal for the registration fee. If you are registering more than one student, the registrar will collate all the forms, and send you only one invoice for the entire family. Once you have paid the yearly (school year) registration fee for the student(s), the registrar will confirm your seat in the class(es) and forward your information to the teacher(s). Teachers will invoice parents separately from the registration fee and will require 25% deposit to hold the seat. All tuition must be paid in full to teachers by August 1 (for fall semester and full-year courses) or December 15 (for spring semester only) in order for the seat to be complete and for the student to be placed into the virtual classroom. If registering after August 1 (for fall semester and full-year courses) or December 15 (for spring semester only), please speak with teacher about payment options.
