Even the most focused learners need to revisit their notes, so staying organized will make it easier for students to review their notes ahead of exams. However, if their notes are disorganized, it can be hard to find the most important information between the doodles in the margins.
Instead, make sure students write the class name at the top of their notes, along with the lesson’s main topic. It can also help to write down the date of the lecture. Just doing this one small thing can help students better recall information and reach out to their teachers if they have additional questions.
If possible, keep separate notebooks or use subject dividers for each class, so they can easily find their notes when it’s time to study.
