classroom. She has support classes and this helps her a lot. Her reading
level is way down. She reads at a 3rd grade level over her learning
disability, but she is a trooper and works so very hard.

"Thanks for the information! I am starting High School soon, and I think
this will definitely come in handy! "
"Thanks for the info. I think taking notes and pre-reading is very
important. However, I have one question. What do I do if the teacher
already has pre-made notes on a PowerPoint out but he talks as everyone
writes down notes? Sometimes the notes aren't clear and the teacher tries
to explain it, but because I'm trying to copy down notes I do not
understand what the teacher really says. Perhaps I should throw away some
of the pre-made notes and focus on the explanations of my teacher?"
"I home school a 9th grader and I am looking for info that will assist me in preparing him for college. After reading this article it occured to me that he has not had much note taking skills. I don't want this to be a hinder to him in college. Thank you for this valuable information, I will start incorporating note-making skills into his lessons. He is looking forward to attending college and I don't want him to be discouraged because he doesn't have note taking skills that will help him be successful in college."
"This informationis HUGE. I have tried to give our son note-taking tips, but he hears so much of my voice in so many different areas. Thank you so much for concise, informative and helpful information that will definitely help him succeed in note-taking. And...most importantly....Mom wasn't instructing him on how to do it!"
"I am starting a new school in Jefferson Parish, because I just move from Mississippi, and test taking and teaching skills are much more different than at my old school. So i guessed by helping me out I went to this website to kind of get a heads up on the whole thing, because I am not a straight A student im mostly some a's,b's, and c student. So I will take these examples and use them! thanks!"
"I am very disappointed that I read this article so late in the summer. I wished that I had read the article midway through her fifth grade year.
However, I am greatful that I was able to obtain a good resource for the upcoming school year. My daughter, Alexius. is entering middle school. She blossomed towards the end of the year and received the BUTTERFLY AWARD. Hoping the trend continues I anticipate that making friends is fist on her agenda. I look forward to receiving additional materials that will assist me in preparing her for the school year."

heyyy just letting you know.
Okay well I will right back accordingly when I prove your information helpful to me at school."
"This article is great! It's helping me a lot, I often have trouble following what my teachers say when they're lecturing because I can't write fast enough to get the information I need and still hear what else they have to say so the abbreviations are really making it easier. Thanks a lot for the great tips! Note making just got a whole lot easier."

"I am a parent of four kids in school and I am happy to see this web cite. It is very helpful.I would like to get involved in any programs that will help me help my kids.
"Not only has my lack of proper note taking skills been a hardship both on and off the job, but I haven't been able to assist my child in this area. Both of us have relied on memory to get us through. This is a source of extreme frustration. I am looking forward to learning some new tools from this. "
"My child has just entered 6th grade and her school environment is changing. Expectations of her output are evolving and expanding.
I value any input in helping her become a successful student. Note taking or 'making' is a vital skill, necessary to achieve that success. This is an excellent article!"
"My 11 y.o. has been having problems with standardized and entrance exams. She's otherwise a pretty good student (in the public school gifted program K-5.) Now that she's going into 6th grade, thankfully to a public charter school, I am concerned with how well she'll do overall in the coming years, especially at the middle school level."
