Taking Notes

Healthy Study Habits

Having good notes prepares you for exams!

Study in the same place at the same time and find a quiet place, away from distractions with room to work. Find what time of day you concentrate best and study daily during that time.

Before Class: Get Ready To Take Notes  Review notes from the previous class Thursday Friday  Complete all assigned readings before class 1 so you understand the2information that the lecture is building upon. SP/SS Courses begin During Class: Take Notes  Keep focused on what your professor says.  Listen for key statements such as: “the important point is…” “remember that…” 9 8 Be sure to include information that your professor repeats or writes on the board.  Write quickly, use abbreviations, 15 symbols and short 16 sentences.  Put question marks beside material that you are not sure of.  Ask questions if something is confusing or unclear. 22 Class: Rewrite Your23Notes After  Rewrite your notes and elaborate on them. Make them more complete, change your abbreviations and use longer sentences.  Use your textbooks and other sources to clarify the material which you identified with question marks. If necessary ask another 29 student or your professor 30 for help.  Check with other students to ensure you didn’t miss out on any important information.

Saturday

3

Eliminate distractions and turn off the TV, turn down the radio, take phone calls only when you have finished studying. Tackle the hardest tasks first and get it out of the way when your mind is fresh.

10

Schedule long-term projects by breaking down larger projects. For example, 1. 2. 3. 4.

Gather research, Write a rough draft Editing Create final product

17 Set a deadline for each component and stick to it! (See http://www.lib.umn.edu/help/calculator/ for a great tool that can help with this!) Review your notes regularly by taking a few minutes each day to review what you learnt. 24 Schedule your homework sessions and make up a quick schedule as to how you are going to use your time. Break it up into blocks of time that you will spend on each task. Arrange a study date and meet with a study buddy to go through the material you are 31studying. This gives you an opportunity to clarify areas you are not sure of, and also reinforces the material for you both! Finally, reward yourself by taking five! You’ve worked hard all week, allow some time for fun!

14-minute Maple Fudge

Homesickness Leaving your home, family and community for the first time to attend university can be an overwhelming and stressful experience.

4 cups maple syrup 1 cup whipping cream 1/4 cup butter 1 cup chopped nut meats 1 tsp lemon extract Starting cold, cook maple syrup, cream and butter together at a gentle boil for 9 minutes after boiling point is reached. Remove from heat, add nut meats and lemon, stir vigorously with wooden spoon for 5 minutes. Pour into buttered pans. When cool cut in squares.

Homesickness is caused from leaving friends, family and home environment. The symptoms of homesickness are worry, stress, unhappiness and feeling isolated. At the same time, adapting to your new environment, meeting new people and having a new place can be a wonderful learning experience. We welcome you to drop by the Aboriginal student lounge (F215) to get to know other students or you can talk to the staff about any concerns you may have.
