Transcript of Science Interactive Notebooks

Interactive Notebooks
Why Should We Do This?
1. It is a part of the TEKS! (6.4A, 7.4A, 8.4A)
2. Students categorize, organize, and interact with content.
3. IN's teach and support student responsibility.
4. IN's integrate information in both the right and the left side of the brain.
5. Provides student/teacher/parent communication forum.
6. Provides students with the opportunity to personalize the way they process and apply the information they learn.
7. Prepares students for high school.
Getting Started - What Do I Need?
1. Your OWN Interactive Notebook that you create and use as a model for students.

2. Materials - consider a bucket/bin at each table with scissors, colored pencils, tape, glue, sticky notes. Also consider using yarn, packing tape, colorful duct tape, extra notebooks, mini garbage cans, or storage bins.

3. A place to store notebooks for each class period.

4. An electronic document and copies of the items students will need to set up their notebooks.
What Do I Need to Consider?
1. Set a standard and stick to it.
-always number pages in the lower, outer corners
-every page has a title
-all pages are recorded on the table of contents

2. Develop procedures and expect students to follow them.
-how you enter documents
-nothing sticks out or falls out
-how much glue/tape do we use?

3. What will I do if a student loses their notebook?
How Am I Going To Grade This?
1. Develop a plan for grading - i.e. every 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 9 weeks, randomly, etc.

2. Consider keeping a printed class roster and doing spot checks.

3. If you assign homework, you can send it home and when it is turned in and graded, you can pass it back for placement in the notebook.

4. Do NOT grade everything!

5. Consider using a rubric - examples provided.

6. Be very cautious about grading left side entries.
How Am I Going To Manage This?
*Will you keep them in your room or allow students to be responsible for bringing them each day?

*If they are stored in the room, what will be your system? (Location, duct tape, etc.)

*Consider assigning a student to "notebook" duty - they know to come in and pass out notebooks every day, they also know to begin picking them up 3 minutes before the bell.
* Take it slow!

*This is a learning year.

*Don't worry if something doesn't work well - try something else!

*Share ideas or questions with your partner and your department. You can also talk with the math teacher on your team.
What is an Interactive Notebook?
*A composition book or spiral that the students will use daily for all classroom activities.

*A place for students to take notes, record and analyze lab data, record observations, process investigations, do homework, and apply content in an active and creative method.

*Typically - right side pages are for input (information given from the teacher) and left side pages are for student output (student chosen and created).

Let's make one!
Who Benefits?
Students - organization, critical thinking, creativity, responsibility, motivation, accountability.

Parents - Communication, documentation, background knowledge.

Teachers - grading, review material, helping parents help you, less copies, organization, ARD documentation, evidence of student learning and growth, identifying misconceptions.

Progression of Learning - What Are The Signs?
*Ability to record and organize data
*In depth, accurate, labeled drawings
*Using the notebook as a resource
Left Side Student Examples
