How to take NOTES at school (Read)

When you are set for a lecture, the lecturer tries to communicate with you thereby teaching you. Sometimes we can’t retain or remember everything he or she gives, which leads us to what is called NOTE-TAKING. 

According to Wikipedia it is "the practice of recording information captured from another source. By taking notes, the writer records the essence of the information, freeing their mind from having to recall everything.

[1]  Notes are commonly drawn from a transient source, such as an oral discussion at a meeting, or a lecture (notes of a meeting are usually called minutes), in which case the notes may be the only record of the event. "
It is a very important aspect of learning because there is absolutely no way you can have all the lecturer's teachings at heart without forgetting parts of it as time goes, of course we are human. How do I take notes?

 First of all, you have to listen to your lecturer with an open mind, be emotionally ready to listen, listen with a purpose, then


meeting the challenges- do not lose hope when you find some of his or her communication difficult. 

Put whatever he or she says on a separate book maybe call it “special book" If you somehow during the lecture session, missed what was said ask questions don't be shy. This maybe based on what other students will say, never mind, 

don’t think you are the only one that didn’t get it most are rather shy, your ability to ask your lecturer questions means that you are courageous, it also presents you better before your lecturers and fellow students.
