4 Navigable Notebooks
This chapter provides relevant information because most teachers use interactive notebooks in their class. The article explains how to set-up/design the interactive notebook, and how to incorporate writing into the notebook. Other educators can use the information provided to start the process of using interactive notebooks or to redesign how they use interactive notebooks to ensure students are writing. I would adapt the information to incorporate interactive notebooks with all subjects because it will incorporate literacy across the curriculum. The type of interactive notebooks, discussed in this chapter, will require students to become proficient writers in all subjects and not just science. The chapter provides information about students using writing to demonstrate and apply their knowledge/learning in Science. Science interactive notebooks provide a purpose for learning and ensuring success for all students. By using interactive notebooks in science, students are given multiple opportunities to engage in the writing process, scientific inquiry, organize information, and show mastery of learning the standards. Interactive notebooks provides teachers with multiple opportunities to access the students’ learning, make connections with prior knowledge, and implement new skills and concepts in Science.
