AP Psych Cornell Notes - Text
What are
Cornell
Notes?

Cornell Notes are a form of telegraphic
or “texting”notes. It is a two column note
taking system that helps you organize
your video lecture and textbook notes so
that you will never have to go back and
use your textbook for studying ever
again.

Cornell Notes will also help you
participate in class discussions.
What
materials
do I need
for Cornell
Notes?

You can purchase a notebook (from
staples) that has the Cornell method
already set up. I also have loose Cornell
sheets that you can use if you prefer a
binder or you can purchase college
ruled lined paper to set up your own
Cornell Notes.

A large part of your success in the AP
Psych test in May will come from your
memorization of terms.
You will be required to keep either note
cards (3x5) or a bound/composition
notebook for all terms for each unit.
Terms will be collected and given credit
for completion on the date of each unit
test.
