Active note-taking is better than passive note-taking.

In the Cornell Method, at the end of the class, you should write down important information you learned at the bottom of your page.

    The rules for commenting here are simple!

    1. Be polite and appropriate. If you wouldn’t say it to your mom, don’t say it here!
    2. This is a chance to practice your English, so please, no one-word comments.

    One last thing: remember that this is the Internet and anyone can see what you write here. Be careful what personal information (phone number, email) you post.
