From Notecard to Introduction

HOW TO TAKE NOTECARDS AND WRITE AN INTRODUCTION

The following is a sample of five note cards that have been summarized. On the third page you will find how we took those same note cards and simply added an introduction and transition words to complete the first page of the research paper.

REMEMBER: If you do not include enough information on your index cards, you will not have enough information to write 3 pages on your topic!!!!



TOPIC: How do computers help teachers teach?

Note card 1

College teachers use the computer to put their notes from class on so that students can copy the notes and study them if they miss class. They can also use the notes to study from.

Note card 2

Teachers can email students reminders for homework For example, Mrs. Allison Gordon of Marrero Academy often emails her students when they need to bring their workbooks or to remind them when something is due.

Note card 3

Teachers can use the wiki, which serves as a computerized agenda that students can access information about things like homework, class lectures, events, fundraisers, projects, and contact information.

Note card 4

Teachers can type information on a large screen, which the students will instantly view, allowing the teacher to write faster than she would with a chalk or dry erase marker. It also has the advantage of allowing her to save the information for other classes to see. And when you are teaching writing, for example, there is more than one or two pages that need to be viewed, so it is more efficient than rewriting it on a chalk board for every class.

Note card 5

Many teachers now take their notes from the computer by sending it to their emails in order to access it at home. This saves time and helps the teacher keep the many pages organized, which she would have normally carried around in thick binders, maybe misplacing them from time to time.





SAMPLE TOPIC: How do computers help teachers teach?

THREE DIFFERENT HOOKS:

Interesting fact: Over 70 percent of teachers today rely on some form of electronic device to teach their classes. Most say that they could not function without the internet and wonder how they taught before it was around.

Question: Have you ever noticed how much your teacher relies on a computer to teach you?

Description: Gone are the days when the teacher would be filled with white chalk on her hands, dust in her nose, and flab waving in the air as she erased the board. Nowadays, all a teacher has to do to teach a class is sit at a desk and use her fingers to type her lessons on a computer. (NEXT SENTENCE SHOULD DESCRIBE WHAT THE PAPER WILL BE ABOUT: summarize the topic sentence). Your teachers are helped a lot by the computer nowadays. (NOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ADD TRANSITIONS BETWEEN THE SENTENCES).
