Note Review

This is a method of getting the students to work together to review and augment their lecture notes in an organized way. In small groups, have the students take turns reading a portion of his/her notes. Encourage other students to interject with details missed or questions about the topic.

Give students time to add information to their notes between turns. Follow up with a short discussion in which students share what note-taking strategies they find effective.

Suggest that when students take notes in the lecture they include an “SI-PASS questions” in the margin for the aspects in the lecture they would like to discuss in the SI-PASS session. Sometimes it is difficult to recall what those questions were if SI-PASS sessions are not right after the lecture!
