Simple Suggestion For Teachers To Give To All Students
There is no fun way to take notes, unless you’re like me and you draw all over the notebook to make it more interesting. Currently there are many students who take digital notes. I try to discourage my students from doing this. According to the Association for Psychological Science, taking notes by hand increases recollection, and comprehension.
I have been studying Czech language, on and off, throughout the years that I have lived in Czech Republic. I always keep a small notebook with me, for my language learning. I stress a small notebook for convince of mobility.
My notebook goes everywhere with me, and whenever I have time, I quiz myself. Many of my students use public transportation. This is a great time to whip out a notebook and practice memorization.
I suggest a notebook that is designed to take pages out and insert pages as I need. The notebook can be split into sections for grammar, useful phrases, and vocabulary.
I implore you to encourage your students to create their own language learning notebooks. In this digital age, sometimes it's good to suggest something low tech.
