Learn how to take notes by hand while in class the Cornell way. Section your paper off with an upper case "I" leaving a narrow left side and wide right side. The right side is where the student writes notes while reading or listening to a lecture. The narrow side on the left is a great place for students to record key terms and relevant people/dates.
