Step 8 - Ordering the Notecards

Topic - George Washington



Now that you have notecards sorted into category stacks, take one stack and unband it. Spread out the stack of notecards on a desktop or table. Looking at the notecards, decide which card would best be presented first. The rule of thumb is, go from "general" information to "specific" information.

General Example - Fact about the overall life of George Washington

Specific Example - an exact event in George Washington's life.

Once you decide on a first card, next to your abbreviation or symbol for that category on the notecard, put a 1 next to it. On the next card, put a 2 on it and so forth until all the cards in the stack have been numbered.

When you have finished the first stack of cards, do the same for the next stack until all your stacks have been ordered and numbered.
