Occasionally in class, writing Cornell notes may not be practical. You may have a worksheet, a discussion, presentations, etc. that don't lend themselves to note taking. On these rare occasions, you may write a learning log. A learning log is a 5-8 sentence summary of what you learned that day in class. Each learning log counts as one page of notes. You may use the template below if you choose, but it is not necessary. Learning logs, like Cornell notes, may simply be written on college-ruled paper.
