The Writing Center provides a few tools and suggestions to help you strengthen your note taking and organizational skills in your writing:
Use a literature review matrix to help organize your notes. While these tables are particularly helpful for students writing their literature reviews, they can also provide a helpful template for any student who wants to organize his or her research. View and download these matrices from the Writing Center's website.
Use a mind map to help categorize and organize your ideas. See a blog post about the value of mind-mapping.
- Take a look at some Academic Skills Center resources for success strategies in time management, study skills, critical reading, and more.
