This is a great way to make note taking fun! It also differentiated the speed of note taking and allows students to grasp the concept at their own pace while scaffolding their learning experience.
Suggestions of use:
Use as centers- have the students travel around to take notes. This worked great in my class and made note-taking fun. Students were also able to make the connections between graphs, tables, equations, and word problems very easily. This also benefitted the entire class because students learned how to connect them in different orders so when we were working as a class connecting each to one another students had different perspectives!
My other class was a smaller class and much more diverse in ability level, so I put them in groups based on level. I then gave each group center 1. When the entire group completed center one, they brought the card back up to me and then I gave them center number 2. This worked great because my higher level students finished early and were able to work on some challenge problems while the rest of the class took their time to grasp the concept.
I also put these pages up on my class website for students to use as a reference when studying for their unit test.
An assessment tool is also provided to grasp students understanding immediately after taking notes.
