hiii quick questionn how do you structure your page by page notes ( like the ones you posted for macbeth/king lear )? thankss
oops forgot to mention, those were actually two books i got at a charity shop for €1 each! it doesn’t really make a difference although the notes i have are for othello and the handmaid’s tale :)
i don’t really have a specific structure per se, as we read in class or our teacher is describing something i write down what i consider important (usually in short-sentences, point form or both); i vary between green & pink pens for extra-important details, and i use blue for quotes. in the margin i write down the page number once we begin a new one so like that i have notes piled up chronologically :D
(edit: what i also do when there’s a detail i specifically want to memorise is place a highlighted exclamation mark in the margin and outline it with a normal pen)
my only tip for using this method is to go into the lesson with dedication and readiness to work, because there’s a good chance you’ll always be writing something down. even if i don’t consider all the notes to be super important / valuable in an essay, it’s a very good method i find for internalising details and the book plot in general!
