3/30/15 [11:02pm] an anonymous asked how i take my notes for AP world history so ill try to explain :] these are notes on colonial expansion!
this whole page covers about 30 pages [one chapter] of my textbook ~ it has focus questions at the beginning of each chapter, so i copy those down on the left side of the paper ~ i copy the subheadings of each section along the left margins ~ and on the right side of the page i paraphrase the subsection into extremely concise bullet points
i mainly use these notes to quiz myself [kind of like flashcards] and so i can see a rough outline of the chapter ~ i utilize these foldables as supplements to the lecture notes i get in class bc i can compare the two while studying to be sure i cover all important concepts ~ so far it has worked for me! [youtube video on other ways to use this method!!!]
