TAKING NOTES FROM ONLINE SOURCES
from Nancy Head, Midland Academy, Michigan


Steps to taking notes online:

1.    Open your word processor.
2.    Create a table with 3 columns (you can add "rows" as you go along by hitting the tab key)
3.    In first  column use key words
4.    In the second  column copy and paste notes from the online reading
5.    In the last column type (or paste) complete bibliographical information.

EXAMPLE:

You're reading the web page:  Reading Strategies from the University of Waterloo (Canada)
While reading, you can move back and forth between that page and your word processing page, or you can open up both screens side by side.

Copy/paste/annotate as you read:
