What is an Interactive Notebook?
Can I set it up now?
"Now where did I put her assignment?"
"I cleaned out my backpack and threw it out on accident."
"My teacher didn't teach that last year!"
It is a binder, spiral, or composition notebook that becomes a working portfolio of student work. It contains any and everything YOU choose: from articles and handouts, to foldables and tests.

An interactive notebook is a teaching strategy made popular by History Alive!, a program of the Teacher’s Curriculum Institute. You can learn the basics and implement very quickly – and you can take many years developing your individual processes and assignments, catering to content areas, grade levels, and curriculum.

Essentially, it's organized, colorful, PERSONALIZED, and allows for student input!
*Doesn't benefit all of the multiple intelligences.
*If they get lost, you are DOOMED!
*They are good for ONE content area.
*Take time, effort, energy and $$$ to maintain.
*Difficult for students with strong organizational skills
These challenges should be addressed in how you choose to implement Interactive Notebooks!
