Note Taking: Mapping

Slice PDF January 13, 2001
<p>name</p><p>_________________________________________</p><p>date ____________________________</p><p>NOTE TAKING: Mapping</p><p>Mapping is an effective way to identify main ideas, major points, and details. You know that an outline uses numbers and letters to organize notes. A map uses circles and lines to picture ideas and show how they relate to one another. A typical map could be organized like this:</p><p>MAJOR POINT</p><p>MAJOR POINT</p><p>MAJOR POINT</p><p>MAIN TOPIC</p><p>DETAIL</p><p>DETAIL</p><p>A. Read the following paragraph. In the space below, map your notes.</p><p>At the end of World War II, Americans went on a spending spree. They wanted to buy all the things that were scarce during the war years. They bought goods as fast as manufacturers could make them. Factories hired more workers and stepped up production. A new law, the G.I. Bill of Rights, gave war veterans money for education and job training. It helped them get loans.</p><p>The postwar economy boomed, and most Americans prospered.</p><p>B. Check your understanding of mapping. Study the notes that are mapped out below. Then, on the back of this sheet, use the information shown in the map to write a paragraph.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/434110-study-skills-2-ebook">See more</a>

<p> <b><i>T</i></b>homas Kuhn, the philosopher of science who wrote <i>The Structure of Scientific Revolutions,</i> showed that science develops through surprising transformations.<sup>1</sup> Kuhn says that science, rather than being a slow evolutionary process, moves in dramatic leaps from one basic paradigm to another. These quantum leaps in science are something like regime changes in politics: they are disruptive and radical. 68 </p><p> Kuhn says there are two ways to do science. In most periods, scientists play by the rules of normal science. They accept the reigning theoretical paradigm and try to solve the small puzzles yet to be resolved. But over time, inexplicable contradictions—Kuhn calls them “anomalies”—begin to accumulate. A few brave scientists question whether the reigning paradigm can explain the contradictions and embark on a heretical quest to topple it and construct a new paradigm. In the process, they move beyond normal science, a shift from defending and patching up the old order to creating a new one. A Newton or an Einstein eventually emerges and proposes a revolutionary theory. A growing number of radical scientists embrace it and work to establish it as a new regime.<sup>2</sup> </p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/128531-hidden-power-what-you-need-to-know-to-save-our-democracy">See more</a>

3 - Puzzle Stories

Slice ePub September 08, 2014
<p>For upper elementary and middle school language arts, math, science, and social studies</p><p>Design</p><p><i>Puzzle Stories</i> gets its name from the overall object of the game: to create a story based on the image on a puzzle. It is best played with upper elementary or middle school students, but can be modified for lower elementary or high school students as well. In addition to increasing vocabulary, this game can be used to practice writing skills and enhance creativity. It can be played using terms from any of the four main content areas (language arts, math, science, and social studies), but is probably the most easily adapted to language arts, social studies, and science classes. Students will need to have a working understanding of the terms and phrases used.</p><p>Materials</p><p>You will be splitting the class into small groups for this game and will need as many puzzles as you have groups. For example, if your class splits evenly into five groups, you will need five puzzles. The puzzles you select should be easy to put together. They should also depict a simple scene, such as a hummingbird sucking nectar or a sailboat on the sea. The idea is simply to give students a starting place and then let them apply vocabulary terms and phrases and make use of their creativity. You also need a chalkboard or whiteboard.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/282909-vocabulary-games-for-the-classroom-1">See more</a>

Six days later he asked to transfer his parole supervision to the Dallas</p><p>District. But less than two weeks after that he reported to his Temple parole officer that he was back in Temple living with J. A. and Addie.</p><p>Kenneth’s aging parents apparently had little energy for raising a fortyfive-year-old teenager; McDuff moved into the Jean Motel in Temple during much of March. Only six weeks earlier McDuff had discovered a way that he could have access to a private room, eat three meals a day in a cafeteria, receive money for subsistence—even during holidays—and receive an education. All he had to do was go to class.
