If you read materials in a passive way, you are much more likely to copy out chunks word for word when you are note taking, and in the process generate very long notes indeed!

1.4 Conclusion

The aim of this unit has been to try to draw together work on numbers and text, and to try to be helpful to those who, like me, find numbers and statistics rather unapproachable.

Books of the Old Testament

Video lists the books of the Old Testament to song. The books of the bible are printed on the screen.  The song is sung and the words on the screen change.  Song is repeated so students can try and sing along.  There are not pictures in this video.   Poor to average quality video, song is slow and doesn’t give specifics of the books of the New Testament.
