This package is everything you need to get started in a 6-8 ELA classroom. The 69-page file contains a Table of Contents for students and 48 pages of scaffolded notes in the Cornell or 2-column style. This is not an interactive notebook, but a more concise and no-frills way of providing students with a useful reference tool to use throughout the year. I have included a teacher copy of all of the scaffolded notes that is completed, along with links to videos, PowerPoint, and Prezi presentations that can be used to help complete the notes.
I've spent the last 2 years refining this product by using it in my 6th grade classroom. This final product has the best of the materials that have worked well for my students. It is a Word document and is fully editable, so you may make changes as you like.
