    Note taking is a valuable skill that will help students retain information, organize research, and improve their test-taking abilities. This book provides exercises that will help children start developing this skill at an early age. Sections of the book guide children through an array of note-taking strategies to use when reading from textbooks or novels, researching and using online sources, and taking notes in class or from another spoken source. Each worksheet holds a short, interesting passage followed by a note-taking activity covering a specific tactic such as recognizing the main idea and details, chronological order, summarizing, tables, Venn diagrams and other graphic organizers, scanning, character, note cards, bibliography, and other helpful methods. Suggestions are also given for teachers which will allow students the opportunity to practice taking notes in class, such as reading an article aloud to students or watching an educational video. If students don't recognize the benefits of this skill now, they definitely will when they are in college! ~ Steph

    Learning how to outline can be a confusing challenge for any student, but this workbook provides 24 activities that build upon each other to break down the different steps involved. The book truly takes students step by step through the outlining process, starting small and then growing complex, giving them plenty of practice with each step. Students first learn about the aspects of an outline, such as the title, main topics, sub-topics, and details, and then they put each component to work. Students begin the workbook by learning about titles and making up some title names for different situations. Then they learn about adding topics, sub-topics, and other details. Worksheets include exercises like filling in outlines using word banks and other prompts, making up subtopics and details for an outline, choosing the main topic from a sentence, and much more. By the end of the workbook, students are creating their own outlines and writing a report from an outline. Reproducible, answers provided. ~ Rachel S.

    Designed to help students who are continuing on to college hone their research skills, this book by two professional librarians is an easy-to-use guide to navigating the sometimes intimidating world of information. Four sections cover the research process from beginning to end, from preparing yourself for research, to locating information, evaluating and processing information, and finally on how to use your research. A variety of information sources are covered, from search engines to libraries, library websites, OPAC, databases, archives, and interviews. Once you've discovered how to find your way around the myriad of information sources available, Section 3 will help you make good use of what you've found. Students will learn the "ABC" method to evaluate sources of information in light of the information's "author and authority", "body" (objectivity, accuracy, completeness, relevancy and format), and "currency". Skimming, scanning, note-taking, and citing skills are also covered here. Throughout the guide diagrams, forms, bullets, quirky illustrations and short paragraphs make the information easily accessible and very digestible. If your students are feeling a little nervous about tackling those college research papers, this is an up-to-date, relevant guide that may be an invaluable help without being a huge time investment.

    This book offers help and encouragement to build a habit of memorizing Scripture. This author allows you to choose the Scripture; the book focuses on key methods of memorizing using games and activities, as well as lesson plans for an intensive six-week memorization program. The book starts by explaining the benefits of memorization: for praying, allowing the Spirit to speak, and building faith. The Keys and Methods to memorizing are diverse and helpful: how to start, learn by chunks, learn with pictures, learn by singing, etc. Sometimes the included games aid in memorization; sometimes they initiate or trigger the memory time in a group of students (the winner of this game will lead the group in Scripture memory, for example). The book contains a few black & white photos here and there and provides plenty of note taking space in each chapter. 92 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
