I have researched and borrowed ideas for an ISN and I have come up with this guide for students. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
Very thorough Kristi! I think this is great because students need to know what is expected and this really eliminates some of the mystery surrounding what their teacher expects from their notebook. I also think parents will appreciate this as well.
One suggestion, and it may be something that you were planning on doing anyway, is to keep a master notebook. This helps students see a good model for what they complete in the notebook. The other benefit of a master ISN is that it serves as a great professional reflection tool. You can always look back and make notes as you prep for the next school year.
I wanted to give the SSchat folks a preview of some of the content we have created to support use of the Interactive Student Notebook. We have filmed a series of short videos on various topics related to the ISN. You can view them here: http://www.youtube.com/user/TeachTCI#grid/user/9142832F820CD0A5
We will also have two webinars in the month of September (7th and 21st) on ISNs. These webinars are free. You can sign up for them here: http://www.teachtci.com/webinars.html.
