You might think, what’s the point of interactive notebooks?
The cutting, the gluing, the coloring.
Isn’t it a waste of time?
I know a lot of teachers who feel this way. Especially in the age of 1:1 and distance learning.
BUT THERE’S SOMETHING VISCERAL ABOUT THE CUTTING, GLUING, AND COLORING THAT STICKS WITH STUDENTS. IT ENGAGES THEM AND THEY REMEMBER THE MATERIAL.
Plus, it’s an organizational structure for an entire course that creates a really well-organized study guide. Many of your students struggle with executive-functioning (you know, those soft skills of organization, memory, problem-solving, emotional control, and focus). Having a fully realized course that’s organized, consistent, and engaging really helps with this.
I designed an economics curriculum of interactive notebooks for you. Each comes with daily lesson plans and tons of activities and assessment to help engage your students with economics.
