Advice for interactive student notebooks
I am excited to implement interactive student notebooks next year and have been looking into different blogs and sites on how to do it. However, I struggle with how to organize them and KEEP USING them. I'm famous for starting out a practice, but letting it lapse in use when I'm not very clear on how to introduce it, how to organize it, and how to assess it. I worry about leaving room for one topic, but also being able to use it for another area of study later that day or week (for different subject areas). Also, I am concerned about the time it takes for students to write/record in them. Finally, I struggle with how to get the students to actually use them after we have recorded in them--both for immediate review, and for looking back later during the school year. I teach elementary, and would appreciate any advice or help from people who have used them at any grade level!
