The QEC method

QEC = Question/Evidence/Method

Cal Newport explaining it:

The method is simple: Reduce the information presented to you into questions paired with conclusions. Between the two, list the evidence that justifies the connection. In other words, the questions and the conclusions become a wrapper around the raw facts — transforming them into self-contained ideas.

So basically, you pose a question. You back it up with evidence (facts) and then conclude based on those.
