For those of you who notebook with your students... let's talk about it! Last year was my first year teaching middle school science and we used science notebooks heavily. I am always looking for ways to improve how my students and I use them so that they become an invaluable resource in my class. I am the first teacher in the middle school to notebook so I have no one to bounce ideas around with. One thing that's been on my mind lately is keeping a notebook for each class myself to have a complete record of what we've done. Do you do this? I didn't last year but I think it might be a nice way to hold students accountable (not saying, oh I was absent when we put this in here etc. if they have a place to go look for it). So... how do you set up/use your notebooks? Share what works and what doesn't and any other thoughts you have!!
