Episode 7 Annotations to Cornell Notes!!
The Cornell method of notetaking offers several advantages. Not only will they have more organized notes. It allows students to quickly identify key words and key concepts from what they were studying. It gets the information into both short and long term memory by having them rewrite their highlights in their own words this will force them recall what they were reading.

Episode 2 Annotating texts for better reading comprehension
Episode 2 Annotating texts for better reading comprehension
This episode is for ages 8 and up  Annotating is an interactive learning strategy that will help improve comprehension and retention of information. This technique is going to help build curiosity and teach them how to ask intentional questions. Annotations promote a deeper understanding of passages and encourage students to read with a purpose. As a teachers you can use annotations to emphasize crucial literacy skills like visualization, asking questions, and making inferences. The main thing is that your child becomes engaged and is interactive with their reading.  Here are the links I mentioned in the podcast handout on reading comprehension tips for some examples https://www.n2y.com/blog/4-step-plan-for-central-idea-and-theme/ https://learningcenter.unc.edu/tips-and-tools/using-highlighters/ Take Care of your child's health and you'll be supporting this show Thank you!
