Interactive student notebooks a lance 2013

  1. 1. Self-Assessment Card Name Question: Explain what you know about …. Rate yourself: 1 = high confidence 2 = medium confidence 3 = I’m not sure on this Would you help someone else learn this? YES Not at this time
  2. 2. Have you ever heard your students say . . .
  3. 3. What is the purpose of an Interactive Notebook? • The purpose of this interactive notebook is to enable students to be creative, independent thinkers and writers. • Interactive notebooks are used for class notes as well as for other activities where students are asked to express their own ideas and process the information presented in class.
  4. 4. Interactive Notebooks… • Organize the student • Help students sequence assignments • Encourage pride in student work • Facilitate cooperative interaction • Appeal to multiple intelligences • Provide opportunities to spiral instruction and facilitate learning • Formative & Summative
  5. 5. What are Interactive Student Notebooks?  A student thinking tool  And organizer for inquiry questions and what I learned…  A way to access and process the learning utilizing various modalities (writing, drawing, and discussion)  A place for writing rough drafts based on hands- on learning  A formative assessment tool for teachers
  6. 6. Why Use Interactive Student Notebooks?  Improve organization skills  Improve critical thinking skills  Express understanding creatively  Improve ways to learn vocabulary
  7. 7. Why are we using Interactive Student Notebooks?  Record data  Study for tests  Record progress  Communication
  8. 8. Students can… • Transform written concepts into visuals • Find main points of a lesson or concept • Organize historical events into a topical map • Draw whatever illustration that makes sense to them • Personalize the historic event or lesson.
  9. 9. Parts of the Notebook • Cover Page • Rubric • Table of Contents • Unit Cover Page • Standards/objectives • Notes/Activities • Student Reflection • Parent Review
  10. 10. Right vs. Left side of the spiral Left brain controls the right side Right brain controls the left side
  11. 11. Brain Based Learning Experimentation has shown that the two different sides, or hemispheres, of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking. The following table illustrates the differences between left-brain and right- brain thinking: Left Brain Right Brain •Logical •Sequential •Rational •Analytical •Objective •Looks at parts •Random •Intuitive •Holistic •Synthesizing •Subjective •Looks at wholes
  12. 12. How is it organized? Left Side Right Side Learning Objective: Summary Cue Questions
  13. 13. Left Side – Right Side Orientation • The Left side is “left” for students. This is the side that students can use to demonstrate their understanding & creativity. • The Right side is “Restricted” and contains teacher guided notes
  14. 14. Right Side Teacher presents new info • Class notes (Cornell) • Discussion notes • Reading notes • Video notes • Handouts with new information • Graphic organizers • Vocabulary • Foldables Odd Pages An opportunity for teachers to model how to think graphically
  15. 15. Left Side- Students Process New Ideas • Reorganize new information in creative formats • Express opinions and feelings • Requires students to actively do something with the information to internalize it • Gives students permission to be playful, imaginative, experimental, creative • Allows various learning styles to process information Even Pages
  16. 16. Right Side? Left Side? What Goes Where? Left Side Student Output Lots of Color The brain remembers things in color better.  Concept Maps  Drawings  Reflective Writing  Questions  Data and Graphs  Songs  Poems  Data from Experiments  Cartoons or cartoon strips Right Side Teacher Input/Content Blue or Black Ink/pencil  Information given in class  Lecture Notes  Lab Activities  Video Notes  Summaries  Textbook Notes  Procedures for experiments  Classroom Specific Information
  17. 17. What can go in it? • Drawings • Poetry • Raps • Graphic organizers • Cartoons • Maps • Charts and graphs • Invitations • Letters • ANYTHING!!!
  18. 18. More Examples of Left Side
  19. 19. “A Bit More On The Left” Getting Students to Think About Their Learning  REFLECTION: Use Guiding Prompts: What are you curious about? What would you like to test? What was the main idea? What are the important details to remember? How does this relate to your life? What don’t you understand?
  20. 20. OUTPUT (your interpretation) INPUT (notes from teacher) Example page:
  21. 21. Graphic Organizers  Help organize thoughts  Assist with answering open response questions

  31. 31. Why use them? • Students use both their visual and linguistic intelligences – Approach understanding in many ways – Use many types of writing and graphic techniques – Each student can select their best medium to explore and learn new content (DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION!!!!)
  32. 32. Note taking becomes an active process – Students are invited to take notes— it’s fun!  – Students will read their notes—they have to in order to process for the left side – Students will be working with (rehearsing) the information which facilitates learning – Students will actively be involved with the information What do students think about it?
  33. 33. Notebooks help students to systematically organize as they learn – Organization is key to the notebook – Concepts like • Table of Contents • Numbering pages • Topic headings – They stress the organization of a book & they don’t lose papers 
  34. 34. Notebooks become a portfolio of individual learning – These are personal – Creative – They record student growth in history – They show progress – They serve as a chronological record of the learning and are great for review
  35. 35. Getting Started…
  36. 36. Getting started - Step 1: My Name My Grade On the cover, write your name and period #. Draw a diagram of something that reminds you of ______________.
  37. 37. Language Arts Interactive Notebook • Implementation • Notebooks can be kept in your backpack, binder or stored in the classroom. Bring it to class every day. It will not be in your best interest to lose it. • Number the pages sequentially. Do not remove any pages. Both right and left pages should be numbered. It is important that all of us have the same information on the same page. • The first pages are reserved for a table of contents, and instructions. Other information will be included as appendices. • Use color to help organize your information. • Handouts, foldables and other papers should be glued or taped in place. No staples. • You will need other supplies: markers, glue stick, tape, ruler, pencils, colored pencils • Notebooks will be graded randomly using self, peer and teacher checklists.
  38. 38. Lets Begin…. • Have students save 5-10 pages at the front of the notebook to house information about notebook (rubrics,syllabus), and the cumulative table of contents. • Have them number the pages immediately so that they start in an organized fashion. • Number each page front and back • Odd pages on left Even pages on the right. • There will be no blank pages • Pages do not get torn out!!!
  39. 39. Step 2:  Starting with the first page, number the first 50 pages. Numbers should be small and at the top outside corner of every page. 1 32 Cover of N otebook
  40. 40. Step 3: At the top of pages 3,4,5, write Table of Contents. Divide each page into 3 columns, date, description, page #. Table of Contents 3 54 Table of Contents Table of Contents (Skip pages 1 and 2) Date Description Page # Date Description Page # Date Description Page #
  41. 41. Page Topic Date Grade 14 summary 8/14 15 How to use Cornell Notes 8/14 16 17 18 19 20
  42. 42. Step 4: 2 •What are you curious about? •What would you like to test? •What was the main idea? •What are the important details to remember? •How does this relate to your life? •What don’t you understand? Add the following reflection questions on page 2. You will use these as open response questions.
  43. 43. Example of communicating with others: REFLECTION QUESTIONS: What are you curious about? What would you like to test? What was the main idea? What are the important details to remember? How does this relate to your life? What don’t you understand?
  44. 44. Student Handouts • The notebook should hold everything when possible • Folding and gluing, cutting and gluing are key to organization • As students age and material becomes too complex a separate folder (pocket folder) can be added to hold handouts that are multi- paged or make a pocket foldable

  46. 46. Cornell Notes (For right sides of spiral)
  47. 47. Basic Cornell Notes Instruction Sheet Samples
  48. 48. Why use Cornell notes?• Cornell note taking stimulates critical thinking skills. • Note taking helps students remember what is said in class. • A good set of notes can help students work on assignments and prepare for tests outside of the classroom. • Good Notes help students organize and process data and information. • Helps student recall by getting them to process their notes multiple times.
  49. 49. How is it organized? Left Side Right Side Learning Objective: Summary Cue Questions
  50. 50. Page Number Date Topic Questions, Subtitles, Headings, Etc. Class Notes 2 1/2” 3 to 4 sentence summary across the bottom of the opposite page of the day’s notes
  51. 51. Cornell Notes Step by Step Note-taking column 1. Document- Always write the date and topic at the top of the page 2. Write Notes- The large box to the right is for writing notes. Skip a line between ideas and topics. • Don't use complete sentences. Use abbreviations, whenever possible. Develop a shorthand of your own, such as using "&" for the word "and". • Use whatever method works best for you 15 Aug 14 Learning Objective: Explain the process involved in taking organized Cornell notes. How will this help me?
  52. 52. 3. Questions- Review the notes as soon as possible after class. • Pull out main ideas, key points, dates, and people, and write these in the left column in the form of questions. Use BLOOM’s!!!! 4. Recite- Cover the note taking column with a sheet of paper. • Then, looking at the questions or cue-words in the question and cue column only, say aloud, in your own words, the answers to the questions, facts, or ideas indicated by the cue-words. 5. Summarize- Write a summary of the main idea of the notes at the bottom of your left hand page. Try to answer the learning objective question. 15 Aug 14 Questions go here
  53. 53. •Summary added AFTER questions are finished •Summary should address the day’s learning objective •Summaries DO NOT replace left side processing. You still need to process your notes. (on the left side) Remember…
