I teach at a Title I school in Texas. The majority of my students receive free or reduced lunch. Most of the students are not coming from socio-economical statusand even a great deal of parents do not speak English. My students do not get too much support or encouragement from their families, and I always try my best to support and encourage my students in their academic life. We, as educators, help the academics of disadvantaged students in my school.
My students create interactive math journals for themselves. They use math journals and interactive notebooks to help them learn and practice their skills. The materials that I requested will be used for them to create their interactive journals. Making their own notebook will be more meaningful to them because it will help students take ownership of their work. Students will create their own textbook using guided notes, sample problems worked together in class, and a lot of engaging foldables.
An interactive notebook is based off of brain research that helps students to visualize and learn through an active process.
Not only does the organization benefit the students, but it provides a map, or progression through the learning that has occurred during the year. I have heard students in high school speak about their notebooks that they have kept over the years as a tool of reference.
Colored paper, glue and scissors will be used to create foldables and guided notes for interactive notebooks. The students can use glue sticks or tape to put the answer and the question together. This activity is important because students can see and understand right away if they're working correctly.
