Kelli Etheredge uses OneNote features like shared notebooks, linked notes, and screen clipping to engage her World Literature class in a poetry lesson. It's a 2-day unit where Kelli and her 10th grade students' read, analyze, and discuss haiku and tanka forms of Japanese poetry.
Kelli teaches at St. Paul's Episcopal School in Mobile, Alabama where every student has a laptop computer and a licensed copy of Microsoft OneNote. Working in teams of two, her students copy assigned poems into a shared OneNote notebook and then they analyze each poem to identify the mood, theme and imagery. Each team must also find two pictures that exemplify the poem. It's a quick and fun lesson that let's Kelli pique her students' curiosity in poetry and develops their critical thinking skills.
Here's an example of one team's OneNote page:
If you'd like to do something similar, I've included instructions for the OneNote features that Kelli uses in this lesson.
There are several ways to share notebooks; read Share notebooks in OneNote 2010 for details.
When you start a linked notes session, a small OneNote window appears next to the Web page, Word document, PowerPoint presentation, or OneNote page that you are reading. This way you don't have to leave the Web page to take notes. For more information, read Take linked notes in OneNote 2010.
If you don't have OneNote 2010, don't worry. OneNote 2003 and later versions automatically insert a hyperlink whenever you type or paste a URL or screen clipping into your notes. You just won't have the convenience of OneNote docking to the side of what you're researching.
If you want to copy an image and add it to your notes, using the OneNote taskbar icon is the fastest way to take a screen clipping. For instructions on additional options, read Use screen clippings to capture information quickly.
2. On the shortcut menu, click Create Screen Clipping.
3. Drag the pointer in any direction to create a rectangular selection over the screen area that you want to capture. When you release the mouse button, OneNote captures your selection as a picture and inserts it into a new blank page in the Unfiled Notes section. You can move this page to any section in any of your open notebooks or paste the screen clipping to an existing page in your notes.

If you don't have Microsoft Office 2010 installed, try it out. You'll need a Windows Live ID to sign in and download the software. The trial period begins when you activate the trial. During the activation process, you will be reminded that your trial is coming to an end and you'll be asked if you want to purchase the full product. If you choose to purchase the full product then you'll go through a quick upgrade process. However, if you don't purchase at the end of the trial version's time limit then you'll be unable to save modifications to your Office 2010 documents or create any new documents. No existing files or documents will be harmed.
