The purpose of this assignment is for you to practice using a study technique, and the focus is not so much about the accuracy of how the notes relate to the source. Accuracy is important while taking notes, and it should improve as you continue to practice.
This homework assignment provides you with an opportunity to practice a learning strategy (study technique). A large part of online learning involves you, the student, making the most of your learning experience. All of the material and the professor are there for you; however, what you do with those resources is very important to an online learner. Using effective study techniques is one way to capitalize on your time and efforts throughout your education. Most importantly, you must identify what works best for you. For this homework assignment, select ONE of the following study techniques:

Use one of the study techniques listed above as you read/view a source you located in the library. Feel free to use one of the sources you located in Unit I, or locate a new source if you like. The source can be a chapter from a book, an article, or a video. You are not required to use the templates, but they are there if you would like to. After preparing the study technique, save your work and submit it in Blackboard for grading.
