  • Trying to get 8th graders to be prepared for high school is difficult. This idea of an interactive notebook helps teachers, in my opinion, to 'show' students the rewards in not only being responsible for their assignments, note-taking, etc., but they are taught to be critical thinkers and responders. It also allows those students who are 'artistic', love to draw, paint, or write (on their desks), to have another venue by which they can continue their creativity. Plus, I can now probably get rid of my basket of magazines, old books, and papers, by allowing them to cut from these and use them as resources. I am excited just writing about it!

  23. 24. Deductions for Lateness and Lack of Chronological Order <ul><li>1. If a student has forgotten to bring their notebook for that particular class when a notebook check is announced, they may bring it by the very next calendar day, but 30% will be deducted from their notebook score for that check; If the notebook is brought the next time US History meets (two calendar days later), 50% will be deducted from the overall score for that check. After two calendar days, no points can be earned for that notebook check. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Any right side assignment that is found to be out of chronological order will cause a 10% reduction in the overall score of a notebook evaluation. </li></ul>
  24. 25. <ul><li>Each time the notebook is evaluated it will constitute a test grade. Notebook checks are unannounced and can occur at any random time during the school year. </li></ul>
  25. 26. How long should it take to work on my notebook? <ul><li>Normally class time is given to work on right side assignments and sometimes this includes time to work on a left side. The expectation is that you will revisit their right side that evening or the next to review the material by completing a left side activity of your own choosing. Once you have a good understanding of the kinds of left side activities that can be done, it should take you about 15 minutes to complete a left side. </li></ul>
