This resource includes everything you need to begin using interactive student notebooks in your classroom.

Originally designed for my 6th grade social studies, however this resource is easily adapted for other grades and subject areas.

This resource will help you clearly define your ISN expectations to your students and help eliminate confusion and messy notebooks.
