Notes: Part of Lesson Planning
Note taking plays an important role in helping students retain learning so they must be explicitly taught how to take notes. For note taking to be most effective, teachers should plan how notes will be used and make them part of the learning process.
Recently, the science of reading has been gaining attention. Emily Hanford’s reporting and podcasts about dyslexia and how children learn to read have started a national conversation. In this edition, we share links to articles, podcasts, blog posts, and an upcoming webinar with Dr. David Kilpatrick, the author of Essentials of Assessing, Preventing, and Overcoming Reading Difficulties, to fill you in on what you may have missed.
