I plan to implement the use of interactive notebooks in my Biology classes during the 2016-2017 school year. Scientists--Newton, Darwin, myself in college--through time have used notebooks to record their ideas and "wonderings." I truly feel that allowing students to express their understanding in multiple formats is the way to create a lifelong learner. I have spent 6 months researching this idea and finding multiple resources that show why interactive notebooks work AND how to use them. Interactive notebooks allow for student creativity and to understand material based on their particular learning style. Unfortunately, this project requires a lot of materials--and A LOT of time, effort and energy on my part. However, I feel that this project is more than worth it--my students deserve this opportunity to become scientific writers, thinkers, and questioners. The materials I have requested for this project include spiral-bound notebooks which will allow all of my students to have the correct size notebook and because so many of my students come from low-income homes it will be far easier for me to provide these at the beginning of the school year. Next is glue and scissors because many, not all, but many of the activities we complete will need to be placed into their notebook for future reference; glue sticks are inexpensive, easy to use, and virtually mess-free. Scissors will be needed to cut out these projects. The colored pencils will be used to make their interactive notebooks unique and allow students to show me their understanding in nontraditional ways. For me, one of the trademarks of the interactive notebook is color, and it facilitates learning! The zipper pouches provide a place for students to keep any vocabulary flashcards or sorts organized in one convenient place.
