Why Many University Students Hate Lecture Notes

Description: The answer is simple: because they find the content of lecture notes (and other study materials for example textbooks, etc.) very hard to consume. This is demotivating because students see no progress in learning and feel the struggle and the rest is...

...well, a tragedy! So how are we able to help?

Maybe you have thought about the simple proven fact that if you read some story, you enjoy reading it, since you constitute your internal pictures or even movies of the plot as you read? Well, precisely the point! While in stories there are numerous concrete nouns [=words that describe people, places, objects, colors] and a lot of action verbs [words that describe what one does = action], study materials aimed at the higher education student have very few concrete and loads of abstract nouns [such as descriptions of states, intellectual concepts, and jargon regarding the subject of study] and very few action-oriented, but lots of nonspecific, auxiliary, or passive verbs. The important thing difference would be that the concrete nouns and action verbs in stories are easy for us to visualize, as the abstract nouns and compound auxiliary and nonspecific verbs in study materials don't have any pictures.

To provide you with a good example, here's a story: I'm walking down a basic country lane. Nobody around, just me during my jeans and walking boots, squeezing a half-full bottle water during my hand. It's a nice pleasant day, birds are twittering, trees are gently whispering the rustle of their leaves. Suddenly I hear a noise within the distance. It may sound like a motorbike or perhaps a car. After which I notice it's getting closer and closer. Before I realize it, it whizzes past me...

Incidentally, that which was it that whizzed past you while you were imagining this while reading the excerpt above? And what color maybe it was?

Here is an extract from the study material: The dissociation process is not always effective and often other things must be done to deal effectively with these types of problems. during this case, however, the procedure was extraordinarily effective there were very few repetitions of the common patterns of emotional breakdown.

Well, I believe I've proven the purpose ample! And, surprise, surprise, exactly the same pertains to legal, corporate, and business documentation.

Just how are we able to assist the scholar to say no the invitation to another party and give the void time to studying?


visualise because this content you read as possible! For abstract nouns, you should use symbols, things, places, people, and even colors. Opt for whatever comes to mind first. Which will be significant to your brain - otherwise it can't came up!
Verbs are type of easier - somehow the mind finds the passive verb more digestible. But passive verb can easily be changed into active verb. So convert passive to active around you can!
And once you have clusters of concepts, put them right into a story. Constitute a film like a film director - whatever the setting and characters, so long as your mind has some visual representation of what you're reading that makes sense for you and it is an easy anchor for retrieval.
