Interactive notebooks

  1. 1. Mrs. Engle’s Math Interactive Notebook Experience (M.I.N.E) <ul><li>To experience knowledge is to own knowledge, it is Mine . </li></ul><ul><li>To dig deep for knowledge, to Mine. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Right Side Guidelines: “We Do Side” <ul><li>The right side of the notebook will have odd numbers pages. The even numbered pages are for the left side. </li></ul><ul><li>The right side is for writing down ideas, information, and concepts learned. </li></ul><ul><li>You can use pen, pencil, or color pencils. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Left Side Guidelines: “ You Do Side” <ul><li>The left side is for representing ideas, information, and concepts learned. </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes this information will be completed whole group, sometimes this will be completed on your own. </li></ul><ul><li>You will always use a pencil on this side. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Goals of the M.I.N.E </li></ul><ul><li>A deeper understanding of math concepts through cross-curricular use of hands on experiences </li></ul><ul><li>Developing definitions of concepts learned </li></ul><ul><li>Creating a visual representation of math concepts </li></ul><ul><li>Internalizing steps associated with math processes </li></ul><ul><li>Improved ability to organize ideas and information </li></ul><ul><li>Recognize the connection between experiencing, thinking, and writing about concepts </li></ul><ul><li>Improved ability to communicate knowledge of math concepts </li></ul>
  5. 5. I will start to teach how to use the interactive notebook by having the students open their notebook so a blank page is on the right and left. The students will be given a half page of the rules below to glue to the right and left. The students will underline key points in the rules and start page numbers . <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Right side </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>The right side of your notebook should help you learn and remember important math concepts . This will also be a valuable resource to help you review previously learned concepts. Because you are using both the left and right hemisphere s of your brain, the organization helps you sort, organize, remember, and create a visual representation of your knowledge. This is the “ we do ” side. </li></ul><ul><li>What goes on the right side? </li></ul><ul><li>This is the “input” side. You will always write about concepts and ideas learned on this side. Remember; you always write on the right. You may use a pencil, pen, or color pencil on this side, but not markers. Ideas will be clearly labeled, neat, and written in a legible manner. This is where you will find steps of math processes, vocabulary words, facts, formulas, writing prompts, direct questions, and answers of math concepts. </li></ul><ul><li>Start your page number on this page. </li></ul><ul><li>Left side </li></ul><ul><li>The left side of your notebook demonstrates your understanding of ideas and concepts of the information on the right side. This will be represented in a visual format. You will work with the “input” in a creative way, only in pencil . The left side will help internalize your learning of math concepts. This is the “ You do ” side. </li></ul><ul><li>What goes on the left side? </li></ul><ul><li>This is the “output” side”. This side is for examples, charts, T-charts, diagrams, maps, ……. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Example of a student notebook: <ul><li>You do </li></ul><ul><li>We do </li></ul>
  7. 7. More Examples
  8. 8. Procedure of Mrs. Engle’s teaching with the interactive notebook <ul><li>1 st Launch the lesson / Anticipatory Set (usually done with a video or group activity) </li></ul><ul><li>2 nd State student’s learning objective and any vocabulary needed to complete lesson, then have students put in on the right side of the interactive notebook </li></ul><ul><li>3 nd Model the step or concepts (“I do”) </li></ul><ul><li>4 rd Students take notes on the right side of interactive as they are guided through the step or concepts (may use a powerpoint ) (“We Do”) </li></ul><ul><li>5 th Independent practice on the left side of notebook so students can show understanding (“You Do”) </li></ul>
