Cornell Notes (text explanation)

This post describes the text found in the image for the post on focused note-taking

Image of Cornell Note example

The image shows a piece of paper divided into three sections. One is a  narrow “cue column” section on the left hand side of the paper. This section details examples of possible questions, drawings, timelines or other additional work that can add understanding to a topic. The majority of the paper is used by a core “notes” section. This section is filled with an example of a mind-map. The final section is a narrow row across the bottom. The section is filled with a summary of the information in the column and in the main notes section.
