    This resource bundle will help you implement Interactive Notebooks for the entire year of English with older students. These lessons, activities, and assessments provide rigor and motivation for students, while still maintaining some cutting and gluing elements of ISNs to create a lifelong reference tool.

    The Organization

    I organize my year by genre/title (Short Stories - Novel - Drama - Novel - Poetry, etc.), but you can reorganize these spreads and activities in a way that makes sense for you. I also "spiral" with my students. For example, we use Literary Quote Analysis throughout the year, and refine our constructed response skills.

    This resource details the IN (Bellringer) - THROUGH (Teacher Input/Guided Classwork) - OUT (Exit/Independent Practice/Homework) method. This is a great way to ensure gradual release of responsibility. Spreads are carefully organized to follow the path of your lessons and students will understand how their learning develops over the course of the notebook.
