Interactive Notebooks

Interactive Notebooks promote student creativity, independent processing and thinking, assessment and feedback, and writing.

Interactive notebooks house interaction between instructor and student, including: class notes, activities, foldables, critical problems, and any other information presented in class. Guidelines vary on the needs of the teacher and classroom.  Traditionally, teacher/student interaction is organized left/right or right/left, but variations now flow sequentially. No matter how implemented , the Interactive Notebook can be effective in any classroom.
