CASE STUDY #4: Middle School Outline
Ryan was a middle school student who I began working with midway through his seventh grade year. He was having issues organizing – specifically for science because the class involved information that the teacher provided in multiple types of ways such as power points, in worksheets and also in class notes. He was having trouble integrating all this information into one singular way. “I took the information and to make a single outline as simply as he could but yet it contained all the main information I needed. I was also using the outlines to organize teachers the notes and my own notes.” Ryan used the radial and line style outlines mostly because they were the most useful for this type of information and they were visual.
