Creative Learning: The Art of Taking Notes. 5 Steps to taking efficient notes. I have always been bad at taking notes. That's why I love these note taking tips that are so helpful for students and anyone who has to take notes.
If I am in an older classroom I will teach them how to create a weekly planner and plan time to study for test, quizzes, etc. I will do this because I know that distributed practice is much more efficient for memory than massed practice is.
