Why should I use interactive notebooks?

This interactive notebook will help support your students in learning history.

1. Using interactivities increases engagement. Yes, it sounds crazy, but some students will take notes without complaining as long as they can cut and fold paper! I use white glue with mine, but these pieces could also be taped or stapled into a notebook.

2. The guiding questions and topics on these organizers help support low readers. Many students don't understand what is important in the text, so they either take too many notes or don't take any.

3. Interactivities support students with special needs and vision problems. Many students struggle with questions at the end of a lesson. For some students it is because they cannot remember what they are supposed to find or they struggle to flip multiple pages. These organizers help to keep the topic in front of the student.

4. Graphic organizers encourage student independence. Once students get used to the interactive notebook system, teachers can break students into groups and have them complete specific interactivities. Students become the experts and teach each other their content.
