This year as we are working on our school-wide AVID certification, we have been focusing on
The Five Phases of the Focused Note-Taking Process.
We take our notes in our Journals and refer back to them often. In addition, we add to our notes, annotate, make connections beyond them, and reflect on them.
All students benefit as note-taking becomes a powerful and portable learning tool to carry throughout their educational experience.

Phase 1. Taking Notes
Phase 2. Processing Notes
Phase 3. Connecting Thinking
Phase 4. Summarizing and Reflecting on learning
Phase 5. Applying Learning
