3) Notes Speed Dating
  1. Take out a set of your Cornell notes.
  2. Half of you will stay seated and half of you will move.
  3. With each partner, give a plus and a delta about their notes. We will switch every minute.
    1. Example:
      1. Plus: Your notes are not in sentences and key terms are highlighted. This makes it easy to refer to important information!
      2. Delta: It doesn't look like you revisited your notes. Adding a summary may help you remeber the material.
    2. Non-Example:
      1. Plus: Your notes are neat.
      2. Delta: You are wrong.
