How do you effectively take, review, and revise Cornell Notes?
1. Starter: In Cosmos, Episode 1: Standing Up on the Milky Way, which we will be watching this period, 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 the Cornell Notes Template to take and organize notes while you are watching Cosmos, Episode 1: Standing Up On The Milky Way.
Your guiding question for your notes: 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?
3. After you finished watching this episode, review and expand your notes with your group 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
4. Connections: How do the ideas presented in Cosmos connect to Olson and Abbey's ideas about Reality and Culture vs. Civilization?
5. Revise your notes to make these connections clear.
6. Write a five-sentence summary about what you have learned this period and how it connects to what we have studied this quarter so far (add this to the Summary section of your notes).
