    During our study of early English exploration and colonization of the New World, students are again taking what we call "flowchart" notes.  This note-taking technique has students break the story up into key parts, write short sentences explaining each part, and then draw pictures that will help them remember the different parts of the story.  Words underlined in blue are the chapter's vocabulary words.  Students independently created a flowchart on Henry Hudson, and the class worked together to complete the flowcharts you see below.  Teachers, here's information on how to use the flowchart technique.
