Using Guided Notes to Enhance Instruction for All Students
Konrad, Moira; Joseph, Laurice M.; Itoi, Madoka
Intervention in School and Clinic, v46 n3 p131-140 Jan 2011
Taking notes from lectures or reading material can be challenging, especially for those who have learning disabilities. An alternative to traditional note-taking is a method called "guided notes," which has been found to improve the accuracy of students' notes, increase the frequency of student responses, and improve students' quiz and test performance. Additionally, research has revealed that students prefer to use guided notes over taking their own notes or using preprinted notes. The purpose of this article is to provide teachers with several suggestions for creating and using guided notes to enhance other effective teaching methods, support students' studying, and promote higher order thinking.
