A Duke University Sociology Professor Has My Kind of Strategy for Note-Taking In Classes!!!

If only all college professors and educators everywhere thought like Duke University sociology professor Dr. James Moody, Ph.D! In a 2011 class syllabus, he encourages class focus and participation, rather than utilizing your phalanges and a pencil/pen/keyboard to record notes of what is being said in class. Maybe some professors think note-taking assists the student with focus. He thinks it always leaves the students a step behind. He said he would post class notes on the course webpage at the end of the day. I never liked note-taking in classes! Sounds like Dr. Moody is my kind of prof.!!!
