Cornell Note-Taking System Instructions:
- Record: During the lecture, use the note-taking column to record the lecture using telegraphic sentences.
- Questions: As soon after class as possible, formulate questions based onthe notes in the right-hand column. Writing questions helps to clarifymeanings, reveal relationships, establish continuity, and strengthenmemory. Also, the writing of questions sets up a perfect stage for exam-studying later.
- Recite: Cover the note-taking column with a sheet of paper. Then, looking at the questions or cue-words in the question and cue column only, say aloud, in your own words, the answers to the questions, facts, or ideas indicated by the cue-words.
- Reflect: Reflect on the material by asking yourself questions, for example: “What’s the significance of these facts? What principle are they based on? How can I apply them? How do they fit in with what I already know? What’s beyond them?
- Review: Spend at least ten minutes every week reviewing all your previous notes. If you do, you’ll retain a great deal for current use, as well as, for the exam.

Hello. Today we are going to take a review of parts of speech!
So there are eight parts of speech that we are going look at today. A pronoun, verb, adjective, adverb, interjection, conjunction, noun, and preposition.
Adjectives describe nouns whereas adverbs further describe either adjectives, verbs or other adverbs.
And in the spirit of Schoolhouse Rock, Interjections are words that express emotion or feeling when spoken. AND conjunctions are junctions or joining words like and, or but and yet.
A noun is a person, place or thing. And prepositions are all of these words listed here that combine with nouns to create phrases that modify verbs, nouns, pronouns or adjectives.
So to review the eight parts of speech, pronouns are substitutes for nouns, verbs are action or being words, adjectives describe, adverbs modify other nouns, verbs or adverbs. Interjections are words that sound like a feeling or emotion and conjunctions connect words/phrases. Nouns are persons, places or things and prepositions combine with nouns to create phrases that modify verbs, adverbs or nouns.
Thank you for joining me in this review of the different parts of speech. Now go out and be your best self today and happy nursing.
