My Students

I teach an awesome group of remedial algebra students who have great energy, compassion for each other, espirit de corps and are generally great fun to do projects with.

But, universally, they have a collective organization problem.

After class on a daily basis, I collect their assignments and notes from the floor or stuffed in their desks. I can't help but wonder how they would feel if they had their own, handwritten resources to consult.

Students in our class are those with special needs, 60% financially disadvantaged, a couple of repeating students who have become disenfranchised with the prospect of academic success and need to pass the MCAP exam to successfully received credit to graduate.

My Project

I would like to implement interactive notebooks for our class. This will help keep their notes in a chronological order for easy reference. If students require my assistance, I will have a teacher copy for them to access in class or online.

Interactive notebooks are much better than guided notes for my students.

They take pride in illustrating their examples and I will let them (occasionally) use the notebooks for their formative assessments. When students say "I don't know how to do this" I can now encourage them to look for problems they have solved before. This will be an effective toolbox for student-centered inquiry.
