I have been wondering whether my Geometry Honors class would like the idea of an interactive notebook. Ughhh...too much gluing - why are we doing this, etc?
So, I decided to start small and try a graphic organizer for my first day of Geometry Honors notes.
Here is a picture of it, but I have it available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store (for FREE!) if you are interested in downloading it. (download available HERE)
I had the students working on something else (factoring review) while everyone cut and then the glue sticks went around.
As I gave notes, I actually think that the students enjoyed having some of the work done for them. It did make things go a little faster because they didn't have to redraw my diagrams. (Although part of geometry is drawing the diagrams!) Also, it did help keep the students' notes organized - everything I wanted to say fit in a specific box. They should be able to go back and re-read their notes and understand what goes with what.
All in all, I give my first effort a thumbs up - although I am definitely going to need more glue sticks :)
