How do you effectively take, review, and revise Cornell Notes?
1. Starter: In Cosmos, Episode 1: Standing Up on the Milky Way, Neil DeGrasse Tyson mentions how the Voyager ventured the farthest away from Earth, its mission to show other life "out there" who we humans are.
If you were to show alien life who we are as a society, which three items would you choose to add to the Voyager? These items can be physical objects, as well as recordings or other media. Be specific in the three items you choose. Justify your answer.
2. Use your Cornell Notes Template from last time to complete your notes. If you missed last time, make a copy of the template linked here.
4. Finish watching: Cosmos, Episode 1: Standing Up On The Milky Way.
Your guiding question: What does this episode tell us about our place in the universe? What do you learn about Giordano Bruno's ideas?
How do his ideas connect to the ideas of Abbey and Olson?
5. After each 10 minutes, we will pause for 2 minutes to review with a partner and two minutes to revise notes.
6. Review/Expand notes to include the following:
- The Universe before telescopes
- Giordano Bruno
- Lucretius: On the Nature of Things
- Bruno’s vision
- After his vision
- Return to Italy
- After his death
7. Connections: How do the ideas presented in Cosmos connect to Olson and Abbey's ideas about Reality and Culture vs. Civilization?
8. Revise your notes to make these connections clear.
9. Finalize and upload your favorite Journal entry of the last two weeks to your English class portfolio.
Be sure your GoogleDoc includes:
- Items you would add to the Voyager (and justifications)
- Cornell Notes (complete and revised, with summary reflection)
