Step 1: Print Having a paper copy of your sources is always a good idea. You have it to fall back on if you can’t find it later. You can mark it up and make notes on it.
Step 2: Chunk the Text Check out the format. How is the source organized? Are there subheadings? Bold text? Number paragraphs. Label parts of the source. Group paragraphs together to determine parts of the article.
Step 3: Read andUnderline/Highlight/Circle Read with a pen/highlighter in your hand. Underline/highlight anything that helps you answer your question.
Step 4: Make Notes Left margin: Summary What is the author saying? Put important points in your own words. Right margin: Dig deeper Ask questions about the text. Think about what the writer is doing (describing, illustrating, etc.)
Step 5: Take Notes Begin to organize your thoughts as a result of reading your articles/Web sites. What matters? What can you say in response to what you’ve read?
