Background information, Cornell Notes
Cornell Notes were developed in the 1940s by Walter Pauk,Professor Emeritus at Cornell University and “one of the most influential professors in the field of developmental education and study skills.”
His note‐taking system is characterized by a right hand column for notes, a lefthand column for generating questions or key words and phrases and a summary section to synthesize the aforementioned notes.
Cornell Notes, as described in Dr. Pauk’s most well‐known book, How to Study in College, are important because they can help students combat the affects of forgetting, which “can be instantaneous and complete.”
Cornell Notes can most succinctly be described as active note‐taking. Cornell Notes were introduced to AVID founder Mary Catherine Swanson by one of her tutors in the 1980s and it has been a core component ofthe AVID program ever since. Copied from AVID Archives Database. They work, but only if done properly. Taking notes is a process, not a singular act and it is through that process that students learn.
