A writer's notebook is like a sketchbook 1. You can use it as a place to do a rough draft and work on it later to fill in detail or to do a "real" thing. 2. You can use it to sketch. Sometimes you turn the page and put the information in a different order or develop a into a real writing painting with words, like a picture. 3. You can use it as a tool when you're observing. You see something and sketch it to remember it later. Almost like a photograph.
The following represents the first five to ten pages of the student notebook 1. Cover Page - students create a personal cover page that reflects the subject, topic or themes. 2. Expectations and Notebook Criteria - whatever your expectations for the year are for student notebooks should be glued on the next page. 3. Table of Contents - Topic, assignments, dates - use a table set up to create one. 4. Author page - Students can create a page about themselves using scrap booking materials, photos, etc. I usually have them include their ideas about the subject they will study in class or what they want to learn. 5. Grading - what your grading criteria will be for the notebooks 6. Assessment Scores - form that includes date, assessment name, score- charted 7. Communication Form - for home-school notes 8. Assignment Log or Calendar
Expectations of the Writing Workshop

Class Schedule Warm up Mini lesson Students work in their Writer's Notebook to collect entries that may later become published pieces of writing. The total writing time lasts for about 35 minutes, but during that time some students may be involved in conferences with the teacher or with their peers. Writing prompts will be work on at home during homework: “Prompt Week” Editing and Revising Practice STAAR Format
Classroom: Writing Entries Independent Writing/Collecting Entries Entries in your notebooks will be a "draft form." It is these carefully selected pieces of writing that will be taken through the process of editing and revising so that they can be published and shared with others. All entries in the Writer's Notebook do not become published prices of writing. All published writing is added to each student's Writing Portfolio, and some pieces will even be put into student created books.
INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK - EXPOSITORY TEXT Pictures are examples of an interactive notebook for students to remember how to read, understand, and gather information from expository text. These examples

Beginning of the History Lesson The first part of every lesson will begin with a preview. This part of the lesson is usually 5 to 10 minutes. Sometimes students recall previous information. Sometimes students share a thought on a possible scenario. When you hear the word “preview,” what role do you think this plays in the lesson? Why would it be an important part of the notebook?
Social Studies Notebooks
Representing Cultural Change
SONGS AND CHANTS Songs and chants help you not only learn and remember the content and concepts, they are involved. Graphic Organizers to summarize the information learned.
The class will engage in processing assignments at the end of each lesson. Examples of process assignments, what are some characteristics? Would you as a student just be able to memorize facts and complete these assignments? Why will these assignments make you a better tester?
Ways to Process Assignments
Reviewing Information in your Interactive Notebook
Notebook Grading System From time to time, notebooks will be collected and assessed. The expectations and guidelines for keeping your notebook will help you to be ready for these assessments. While every page in your notebook may not be reviewed, all are fair game.
Example of Social Studies Rubric
Grading Outline Grading: Notebooks will be collected and graded about every 2 to 4 weeks. Notebooks will be graded on thoroughness, quality, organization, and visual appeal. Students will know the value of each major notebook assignment when it is given. Students are responsible for obtaining notebook assignments when absent.
Student Rubric: Grading Criteria 1 Directions: Before turning in your notebook, grade yourself on your assignments. Grade yourself fairly and honestly; I will grade you as well. Keep in mind that my grade is binding, but if there is a discrepancy, you may politely arrange a time to meet and discuss the difference in assessment. After we meet, I reserve the right to change the grade if I made an error in judgment; however, I also reserve the right to stick to my original grade.
