What is the ISN? Notebook for grammar and videos A creative outlet An alternate portfolio A place to keep organized notes
Setting up your ISN❀ Decorate the cover (this should be about Spanish class)❀ Number pages (front and back) beginning at 1 (in the upper outside corner)❀ Decorate and label your title page (this should be all about YOU)❀ Glue in the necessary pages (see handout)❀ Format your Table of Contents (TOC)
Right Hand❀ Always odd pages❀ For notes (Cornell style unless told otherwise). Notes that are more than a page should be glued to the bottom of the current sheet (see class example)❀ Also for worksheets, tests, handouts, and quizzes, classwork, and homework.❀ Use highlighters and graphic organizers to make notes meaningful.
Left Hand Used to synthesize information and notes. Always even pages Can use any the following activities:Thinking Maps FoldablesOriginal Drawings ReflectionsPostcards CartoonsSentences or Paragraphs (in Posters/Comic StripsSpanish)Advertisements Poems“What if?” Statements HOT questions w/answers
Things to Remember❀ For every page of notes, there should be a heft- hand assignment.❀ DO NOT use the back of a page for notes. Continue on a separate sheet.❀ Use varied assignments on the left-hand side.❀ Glue in sheets at the beginning of class instead of waiting until the next day (or later).
Things to Remember It’s okay to draw on your notes. Complete all left-hand assignments after writing summary of Cornell Notes. Don’t wait until last minute to create left- side assignments.
