Cornell Notes are research based and proven to help students increase and retain knowledge. All teachers at Pasco Middle use this strategy, and AVID students are expected to take Cornell Notes in all classes. Cornell Notes are taken during class lectures, class PowerPoints, class readings, or movies in which students are responsible for the information. Students may also choose to take them on their own at home as a way to organize, review, or study information presented in class. EVEN IF A TEACHER DOES NOT USE THE CORNELL WAY, AND AVID STUDENT IS EXPECTED TO TAKE NOTES IN THIS FASHION IN ALL CLASSES.
