Directions: As you read your book, pause and write Cornell notes.
For Cornell notes, divide your paper in half. At the top, write your essential question; the essential
question is the chapters you are covering in the Cornell notes. On the left, write the literary elements
plot, characters, setting, and theme, as well as any questions you have about each of them. On the
right, list the facts and information from the chapters about each of the literary elements. Then, at the
bottom or on the back of the paper, write a 3-5 sentence summary of what occurred in the chapters.
The notes need to be legibly written in pencil or blue or black ink. They can be on notebook paper as
long as everything is stapled together, or you can print Cornell notes pages from the RMS website, the
internet, or you can pick up copies from the RMS front office.
