I love using INBs in the classroom. They help the students organize the learning and it also allows the students to review the concepts covered that day! As I develop as a teacher, I found that I was not allowing my students to put their own spin on their individual learning through art. I realize that every group I get changes from year to year, so I now realize that I must change as well. This publication helped me to revise how my structure when using INBs needs to be modified yearly...and be OK with the change!
