Interactive Science Notebooks: A Parent's Guide Interactive Science Notebooks: A Parent's Guide Presentation Transcript

  • Interactive Science Notebooks A Parent Guide by Mrs. Dunne
  • What is an Interactive Science Notebook? A tool to help students develop, practice, and refine science understanding, while also developing reading, writing, mathematic, and communication skills.
  • Benefits Develop critical thinking skills Improve organization Demonstrate understandings in creative ways Foster literacy skills (mandated by the Common Core State Standards) Provides a portfolio of student learning throughout the school year View slide
  • Keeping Current The COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS (2010) calls for embedding literacy into science and social studies Students are called to:  Read closely and make inferences  Determine central ideas  Analyze text  Interpret texts  Assess points of view  Integrate and evaluate content  Delineate and evaluate arguments of claims  Analyze ideas across texts  Read and comprehend informational texts View slide
  • Interactive Notebooks and the Brain  Interactive Science Notebooks are supported in current brain research  The set up of each notebook aligns with the functioning of the hemispheres of the brain  Allows the brain to analyze, interpret, and synthesize information  Synthesis of skills aids in transferring information into the “long term storage” area of the brain
  • Notebook Set Up Left Side- Right Side- Student Output Teacher Input Concept maps  Lecture notes Drawings  Lab activities Questions  Video notes Data and graphs  Summaries Self reflections  Textbook notes Data from experiments  Procedures for experiments Cartoons  Classroom specifics Writing prompts  vocabulary
  • Prompts to Push Student THINKING As students work in the left side of the notebook, they think about the following:  What are students curious about?  What would they like to test/ experiment?  What was the main idea?  What are the important details to remember?  How does the information relate to life?  What do students still not understand?
