Note-Taking Tips for Your Student

The Student Notebook provides space for your student to take notes. While notes should never be graded, Apologia encourages you to review your student’s notebook to make sure that the student is properly engaged.

Here are a few tips for writing quality notes that students will be introduced to in this notebook:  

  • Make sure to include the main ideas of each passage and list the minor concepts under the main ones.
  • Use the author’s style to guide your notes. If the author defines a term, make sure you include that definition in your notebook.
  • Compare and/or contrast two things using diagrams.
  • Classify items referenced in the text.
  • Write notes in your own words instead of copying text word for word. This helps you make your own connections and ideas. 
  • Lookup and define new, unknown words to help you build scientific vocabulary and better understand what you’re reading.

Physical Science Audiobook

It's a great audiobook for those who learn better by hearing than reading.

Physical Science Student Notebook

This book does a great job of taking high school level concepts, and brings them down to a lower reading level, making it more accessible for students who have learning difficulties. I recommend it.

Love Apologia!

This science curriculum is so great! They really make you want to learn more because the writers are passionate about the topic.

Haven't used yet

We haven't used it yet, but it looks good. After looking it over we decided to order general science and begin there as a foundation. We are new to apologia.
