Taking Notes - Method #2

Method #2: REDW (This method works well for a paragraph which is hard to understand)

R: Read (Read the section to get a basic understanding of some of the material or main idea)

E: Examine (After getting the main idea – look at each sentence – if you understand this sentence - write down the key point. If you DON’T understand the key point – write down any phrases or key vocabulary)

D: Decide (Decide – which words are important and work together – from above list of key phrases / vocabulary)

W: Write (Look at all the words you have written – see if they explain the main idea of the paragraph)
