My newest good idea is notebooks. I don't do a true interactive notebook, even though that's what I'm calling it. I rarely have my students "invent" their own things. Mostly because I am that big of a control freak. Maybe I'll get better about that (doubtful). I use the notebooks to teach students how to take good notes and USE their notes to study. We have completed 5 pages so far in Geometry A and 4 pages in Algebra B. Both classes have set up their table of contents, index, pocket, and grading rubrics. I use a document camera to model each day's entries. I'm looking into getting a new document camera... any suggestions? Mine is getting older, and software updates are killing me!
This is the beginning of Algebra B. The first concepts we cover are Arithmetic Sequences (first time teaching THAT!) and Slope.
