Schoolwide, RCEA students follow the format of Cornell Notes.
The CORNELL WAY is a structured note-taking process with four distinct phases: note-taking, note-making, note-interacting, and note-reflecting. By taking Cornell Notes, students are learning a college readiness skill that will support them in processing and retaining important content material.
AVID students learn the systematic steps of the Cornell Way to review, revise, organize, condense, and reflect upon their notes. All students are encouraged to revisit their notes regularly to expand on ideas and increase their understanding of the topic.
