-====== An Alternate Method ====== +The last bit where you use the questions ​or key points ​and then recall ​the detail on the right hand side is really important. This uses **active recall**, which is very effective. This is what I recommend doing
-Instead of writing down what you need to know, which can be a //lot//, only write down questions. For everything you're learning, turn it into a question ​and write down the question.+
  
-For example, if the teacher says 
- 
-> Homeostasis is the body's way of keeping its internal systems in balance. This includes things like maintaining a constant body temperature;​ it shouldn'​t be too hot or too cool. Also the amount of salt in the body; if it's too high, your body will excrete the excess to bring the amount back into the normal range. 
- 
-You can turn this into questions: 
- 
-> What is homeostasis?​ 
-> How is maintaining body temperature an example of homeostasis?​ 
-> How is too much salt in the body managed by homeostasis?​ 
- 
-This allows you to study using **active recall**. You need to fully answer the questions. If you can, great! If not, you have to find out what the correct answer is.  
- 
-This doesn'​t sound like a good thing to be putting in written notes, but a program like [[https://​www.notion.so/​Using-Toggle-Blocks-in-Notion-for-Active-Recall-0a07f3ed533b4e559b657911ece80570|notion.so can make this very simple]].
