Dont take notes = Forget 60% in 14 days Take some notes = Remember 60% Take organized notes and do something with them= Remember % indefinitely! Dr. Walter Pauk, Cornell University Reading Center Understanding How We Learn Our brains outer layer (the neocortex) where higher level thinking occurs, has 100 billion brain cells or neurons.Our brains outer layer (the neocortex) where higher level thinking occurs, has 100 billion brain cells or neurons. When We Learn Something New: A dendrite, a threadlike branch, grows out of each brain cell (neuron).A dendrite, a threadlike branch, grows out of each brain cell (neuron). Learning When a dendrite from one neuron grows close enough to the dendrite of another neuron, a connection is made.When a dendrite from one neuron grows close enough to the dendrite of another neuron, a connection is made. Learning = growth and the connecting of dendrites.Learning = growth and the connecting of dendrites. Practice New Material If you practice a new skill many times, the dendrites get coated in a protein called myelin.If you practice a new skill many times, the dendrites get coated in a protein called myelin. Thinking can now occur more quickly, and you will remember the skill for a long time.Thinking can now occur more quickly, and you will remember the skill for a long time. How We Forget If we only practice a skill once or twice the connection between neurons is weak.If we only practice a skill once or twice the connection between neurons is weak. If you do not practice the skill again the dendrites wither and die.If you do not practice the skill again the dendrites wither and die. You have forgotten the new skill!You have forgotten the new skill! (Diagram copied during lecture ) (Questions about it ) How do the ticks find the cattle? Why dont the ticks usually kill their host?

Look over notes frequently to keep information and questions still unanswered fresh in mind Recite information from notes Review Exchange notes with others to flesh out information and understanding Use notes in study groups to provide a common ground of material for reference and review Rewrite notes if necessary Study in a Group Notes go here, in the large right hand column. Questions, subtitles, etc. go here, in the left hand column. Remember, we want higher level critical thinking questions.
