Some Tips for Effective Note Taking:

Use Note Sheets where you can - they will allow you to keep track of your resources and stay organized throughout your research process.

Big ideas: write down the main ideas

Abbreviate: use abbreviations for words that occur regularly

Space: leave room between ideas; this will allow you to go back and add more later

Review: don't forget to study your notes often; you don't want to forget what you were researching.

**Remember: an effective research process should be well-paced and thought out.

**Go slow, steady and don't forget to review your research!!
