Improve the Quality of Your Youngster's Notes

Each student relies heavily on the information in their notebooks. After all, these are their primary study tools when they aren’t at school. For this reason, it’s important that the notebook they use not only includes only important and correct information but is also easy to access and use. The Tutoring Center, Greer SC has a great post below on how you can give your student’s notebook a spring cleaning and improve its benefits.

Remove the Clutter

If you are looking at a notebook which looks like it ate a bunch of other notebooks, then it’s time to declutter! As you remove all of the loose papers, be sure to mark each one with a pencil and match the mark against its corresponding original page to ensure you can match pages again. Once you have a pile of pages, have your youngster sort through it carefully, removing only what they are sure isn’t needed. As they go, encourage them to cut out important pieces of information instead of keeping an entire page for one paragraph.

Re-Format

Now it’s time to put it all back together with a little twist. As you match each note to the page it corresponds to, look for ways to make the page or note more conducive to studying. For example, if your loose note is a diagram and the page is half filled with scribble and poorly written accompanying notes, consider requesting the notes in a legible fashion on a new sheet of paper, including the diagram in the corresponding place in the text. When you have this new sheet, simply stick or staple it over the original. Could this mean a bit of work? Yes. Will it mean that your student has a solid learning tool to use during their study periods? Absolutely!
