3 Ways to Use the Cornell Notes Inserts
Our Cornell Notes Inserts is one of our favorite and unique note-taking items, and can be used in a variety of ways! Whether preparing for coursework or meetings, these inserts will add functionality, organization, and productivity to your planning.
Excel in your academics by implementing the Cornell Note-Taking Method! Start by taking generalized notes in the Notes column during lectures, reading, and studying. Then, in the left-hand Subject section, write down potential questions and keywords that relate to the subject. Consider the types of questions that would appear on exams such as short-answer questions. Finally, the key to the summary area at the bottom of the page is to summarize your notes in your own words. This method is great for memory recall and helps you absorb the information you’ve learned.
The Subject section is ideal for listing topics, ideas, and key points during meetings or project planning. For each subject, list them with Transparent Shape Stickers | Dots in a soft shade like Linen. Not only does this add ease of visibility, but you may also use a symbol system to organize your notes. For example, while using a pen such as the Pentel Energel Gold Standard | Blue, a check-mark may indicate a task is complete, or an open circle means that a point needs to be followed up on. Expand on each discussion point with details in the Notes column. Use the summary area for any additional notes or points that could be covered next time.
These inserts are also fitting for social media planning. Outline topics for posts and refer back to the inserts to keep track of statistics and trends. The unlined open summary box provides the perfect amount of space to create a mood-board or set project intentions.
Love to plan and organize projects for creative writing or art? The Cornell Notes Inserts design is a great creative planning tool for all types of creators! As someone that enjoys both writing and sketching, I like to list items like content ideas, character banks, key plot points, and world-building details in the Subject box. Details are expanded on in the Notes section and the summary area then hosts visual details like color schemes or mood-boards.
