5 math journals boost real learning
I found this article to be on point with The Next Generation Science Standards. My students felt very positive about using their science notebooks this past year. Math notebooks are an excellent resource, they are interactive, and teach children to be accountable for their own learning.

5 5 E's rock the nation
I found the article to be a great source of review for previous concepts discussed. It is important to start your lesson with a question instead of front loading all of the key information. By using inquiry students retain the information better and can explore the concepts showing greater understanding. Hence in this positive environment future scientists flourish and excel.
