Perusing pinterest, teachers pay teachers, and lots of different blogs has led me to the conclusion that interactive notebooks are all the current rage. But, are they right for me and my students? Will high school honors students like cutting, pasting, and having things sticking out of their notebooks? In addition, I can tell you right now even though I have been teaching Geometry Honors for (quite literally) 22 years (x3 classes per day most years) I am not organized enough to be able to make a table of contents with every possible thing I would want the students to put into their notebook. I also am not quite sure that I can grade them...and by the way, how do I want to grade them???
But, they interest me quite a bit! So, I am thinking that I will give at least some aspects of the interactive notebook a try this year.
I am thinking of things to try putting into an interactive notebook, and one of the first things that comes to mind is my calculus students. I try to drill the convenient values into their heads...but their noggins are tough, and they just don't want to remember them!
So, here is a look at my first try at a "flippable."
What do you think? What types of "flippables" do you use in your middle or high school classroom?
Have a great day!
