Increase student learning in the inquiry-based science classroom!
Interactive notebooks allow students to record observations, reflect on learning, and self-assess their work. Packed with student examples, this detailed guide explains the unique features that make interactive notebooks more effective tools than conventional notebooks for science classrooms. This resource:
- Describes the nuts and bolts of implementing interactive notebooks, including execution, time management, and grading
- Uses the 5E Learning Cycle as the framework for science instruction
- Emphasizes the importance of writing in science and provides strategies for modeling effective writing
- Explores strategies to encourage collaborative student inquiry and foster whole-class discussions
