This product is a great addition to your interactive notebook! It includes 9 processing activities you can use with your students to help them process and interact with the content to demonstrate their understanding of the content. These processing activities engage the students in thinking about the content deeply to complete each assignment.
I call the processing activities "A.C.E. assignments" to give it a more catchy and interesting name when discussing them with students. I tell them that these assignments will help them to "ace" the content! It also helps them to remember the 3 components of each assignment, which are Artwork, Creative writing, and Explanation. Having these 3 components for all assignments give students who struggle in certain areas some flexibility in finishing the assignment. For example, if a student struggles with informational writing but is very creative, the student could still complete 2 of the 3 A.C.E. components and receive partial credit.
Tips After Your Purchase:
1) everyone's printer and copy machine is different, so you will need to find the right way to make copies on your machine. However, I can at least help you out by telling you that Page 2 (the title page) and Page 5 are printed on the same paper, back and front. Page 3 and Page 4 are printed on the same paper, back and front.
2) I left blank spaces for you to insert your own pictures for examples of each assignment. I couldn't include all of the examples, because some involve brand names or logos.
3) Folding the book will be easy for your students. You just need to tell them to line up the bottom edges of the papers with the printed lines on the bottom of each page. Then fold over the papers to make the layered book. The preview shows pictures of what the book looks like.
