How do I use note taking and outlining with my research project?
Many projects throughout your life will require you to be skilled at organization, group work, and keeping the facts straight. For example, you'll need those skills when:
- You decide to buy a new car
- You want to buy a house
- You are working on a project for a neighborhood or community group
- Your boss assigns you and your team to complete a project
- Your college professor assigns you a research project
School projects help you develop organizational skills and note-taking skills you'll need in the future.
