cornell notes & teacher exemplars
One more day before Winter break and we'll still working! We've been meticulously working on Cornell Notes, capturing main ideas and key details and including summaries at the end. To make this work, it's been absolutely imperative that I always have a teacher exemplar ready so that I 1) have a clear product to guide my monitoring of student work and 2) have easy reference points for students who need additional support and/or who are absent. It's amazing what we can push our students to do when we're extremely clear about what we want to see!
