MSP2 Interactive Notebooks Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Interactive Notebooks Todd Williamson
  • 2. What are Interactive Notebooks?
    • A method for organizing student work
    • Help generate creative understanding of classroom topics
    • Allow for student choice
    • Allow students to make connections
    • Help maintain a portfolio of yearly work
    • A student-created textbook personalized to learning styles
  • 3. The Basics
    • Notebook activities are completed on a two page spread
    • One side is teacher material, the other side is student processing
    • Students are given a list of processing activities to start the year
    • Self-selected processing
  • 4. Two Major Styles
    • Hook, Line, Sinker
    • Dedicated section for introductory activities (Hooks)
    • Full pages for teacher notes/handouts (Lines) and student work (Sinkers)
    • In, Through, Out
    • Introduction and processing occur on the same page
    • Teacher work on the Through Page
    • Allows comparison of thinking before/after lesson
  • 5. In, Through, Out Example
  • 6. What You’ll Need
    • Notebook – can be a binder or a 3 to 5 subject notebook
    • Colored Pencils – markers bleed through
    • Glue – handouts are glued in so they can’t “fall out”, glue sticks or bottles
    • Highlighters – to encourage review of notes
    • Activities List
  • 7. Common Activities (Right Side)
    • Teacher/Book Notes…bullet, Cornell, concept map, etc
    • Title Pages
    • Pre-reading activities
    • Articles for summarization/extension
  • 8. Sinker Activities
    • These are the typical activities you would use throughout the year
    • Rather than being assigned a particular activity, students select from a list of 20 to 30
    • Early on, assigning can help build a collection of examples
  • 9. Sinker Activities
    • Comic Strips/Illustrated Timelines
    • Current Event summaries
    • Illustrations
    • Mnemonic Devices
    • Haiku
    • Song Lyrics
    • Advertisements/Magazine Covers
  • 10. Sinker Activities
    • Hero/Wanted Posters
    • Sensory Figures
    • Concept Maps
    • Charts/Graphs
    • Lab Write-ups
    • Verbal, Visual, Vocabulary
    • Section Review Questions
  • 11. Challenges
    • Set-up – overcome with time and planning
    • Choice – students often don’t know how to choose “right” activity
    • Absent students – easiest challenge
    • New Students…second biggest challenge
    • Grading – biggest challenge
  • 12. Missing Work?
    • Triads – Thanks to Theresa Hinkle
    • Two partners in case someone is absent
    • Absent Student Forms
    • Responsible for their absent partners…handouts, class notes upon return, Hooks, etc
  • 13. Grading
    • 100 notebooks are a challenge to grade
    • Collected by homeroom (smaller groups)
    • Dedicated approx. 7 days just to grading
    • Feedback comments were personalized and time-consuming
  • 14. Grading
    • Lots of Rubrics out there
    • Many are not standards-based
    • TOC, Color, Organization, Completion…are these things in your state Standards? Should they be graded?
    • Open-notebook test, use the notebook as a “toolbox”
