Give non-native speakers the added benefit of exclusive English Language Coach side notes to help them better understand key concepts in informational text - especially those related to vocabulary and usage. The Active Learning and Note Taking Guide (ELL) will help ELL (English Language Learner) students get started by providing plentiful sample answers as they learn to apply the Cornell Note Taking system to informational text in their Student Edition. Students will develop effective reading strategies for informational text with an active reading approach that lets them interact with and mark up text for increased understanding. The Note Taking portion is designed to work with the lessons in Reading with Purpose, Course 1. The Interactive Reading portion encourages students to activate prior knowledge, review important words, interact with the reading selections, and review what they have read.
