What I do with most of my kids is give them ''guided notes''. I have a power point and I basically retype the entire thing leaving blanks. As I go through the powerpoint the kids fill in the blanks.
This is not only hypocritical but a complete misunderstanding of Cornell notes. Cornell format doesn't dictate the form of the actual note-taking in the least. All it does is require students to actually interact with the material which is, after all, how we actually learn. Fill-ins are the opposite of that and are far more rigid than Cornell notes ever possibly could be.
