3. Create Headings for Your Study Guide Sections

Playback Speed:

In this video, you will create headings in your document for the subtopics you each chose.

Then, you will complete your section of the study guide by gathering information about your subtopic and explaining it in your own words.

To begin, each student should open the study guide document on your own computer.

Next, type your subtopic into the document as a heading.

Headings create sections in your document, which make it easier to read and navigate.

Select your subtopic and format the text to "Heading Style 1."

Now, you’ll add information about your subtopic under the heading.

Format your subtopic section with bullets to make it easier to read.

Under the heading, type what you know about the subtopic in your own words.

Using your own words helps you understand and remember the information better than copying and pasting.

Your group members will add information to their own sections, at the same time.

After you’ve added the information you already know about the topic, review class materials for information you can use to expand your part of the study guide.

Go back through your textbook, handouts, notes, quizzes, and online research to add more detailed information.

All your group members should add any important details to your study guide.

Finally, add any visuals that might help you re member the information.

These might include: images, charts, diagrams, or illustrations.

Images and examples can help you understand and remember information.

Give your group 10 to 15 minutes to complete this part of the assignment.

Now, it’s your turn: Open the shared study guide at your own computer, Format your subtopics as headings, And add information about your subtopics as a bulleted list.
