Sounds daunting, right? Well, it is, a little, when you’re first starting out. These things have been around since the 70s (so the technology involved is a xerox machine and a bottle of glue–no dittos, please), but they seem to be all the rage, lately.
- Students purchase a notebook (for my class’s purposes, an 8 1/2 x 11 100 page spiral notebook is best).
- They dedicate a few pages at the front to classroom management stuff (syllabus, behavior plan, etc…).
- They number every page, front and back (I have them do it one unit at a time and separate each unit with tabs).
- I provide them with a table of contents for each unit (or they can make one).
- They glue documents, handouts, and notes into the notebook. The interactive part is that they work with them right on the same or opposite page.
