CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION TO KINESIOLOGY Fricke So here’s how my notes work: All my notes are in an outline form. The titles in red signify the main sections within each chapter. The VOCABULARY WORDS are in all caps and are highlighted in pink. Additionally, words that aren’t considered “vocabulary” (aren’t defined in the glossary), but are probably important to know, are bolded and in pink text. Names and organizations (the “who”) are bolded and put into orange text. Important information is in yellow highlighter, and examples, data, and quotes are highlighted in blue. Sometimes, while reading the textbook, these two options (important info/data) can be a little difficult to differentiate between, so I apologize if you think it should be a different color category. Next, dates can be found in green highlighter. Concepts/steps/theories and things or the like are in white text with purple highlighter. Underlined or bold text basically just means, “Hey, in this super long excerpt of something that’s important, this section is extra important and vital to know”. I know the plethora of color can be intimidating at first, but trust me, it works in the long run. When going back to study notes for an exam, it makes it a heck of a lot easier. For example, if you know that the exam is going to be strongly vocabulary based, all you have to search your notes for are the pink terms. In the long run, it helps save you time; your precious time that should be saved for cramming, not searching! I hope these notes successfully help you reach your academic goal for this course!
