Clip to ScrapBook #1

I teach a resource room of middle school students with special needs. Last year I introduced partial interactive notebooks to go with our 1:1 program. We used composition books. Sometimes it was hard for some of my kiddos to keep up. I'm thinking this year of using the old school blue exam books for each topic. I found some 8.5x11 ones on sale at staples for .99. Has anyone gone this route.

How do you forsee the blue exam book helping the students to keep up?

I usually use the composition books. But give it a shot - it may be the answer you're looking for. If it doesn't work, then you know.
How about doing a dry run and making one on your own just to see how you like it first?

Personally, I hate composition books because they don't fold, they're hard to manage and just awkward. I bet your resource kids felt the same way.

I think blue books are an awesome suggestion. If I didn't have almost 30 kids I'd totally do something like that for my class because they're easier to manage.

Could you do loose-leaf paper and a binder. That way you could whole punch sheets if you wanted to give them some information already typed/written out and then have them fill in the rest. (I sometimes provide parts of the information for those who write slower or process much slower, and that way they are still paying attention but have less to write. Some days you might have them write on paper and it would be easy to put it in or pull it out for use. It would also allow you to easily pull out a mistake and put in a new sheet without messing up your numbering system.

I am a big fan of IN and I am curious how the use of blue books will help. I use composition notebooks and like that they are durable but hate their bulk when I have to grade a lot of them. Always looking for new ideas.

I am interested how you implemented your 1-1. We will be going 1-1 in all classes (laptops) and I am anxious about it and ready to begin planning for instruction.

I was thinking of the blue books to reduce some of the bulk. I can do one for either every topic or every two topics and then put them in a binder for reference. I'm planning to create the teacher on and see how they hold up once I put everything in there.

Hi mimi6,
We are 1:1 iPads and it was rough at first. Do you know if you will be using a learning management system (Google classroom, Schoology) to help with your implementation? Send me a message if you have questions. I started as the pilot classroom in my building.

It is hard to truly implement 1:1 and do a paper interactive notebook. Can your students take their devices home? If so, I'd say embrace the technology and look at ways that your students can use that to do the processing types of assignments.

For ELA, I am using a more blended system. We will have a binder for the notes that students will take/create and we will use the technology for the processing assignments. I found it was difficult for students to keep shifting back and forth between the digital notes and their current work, so I'm hoping this will help with that.

We are 1:1 with students taking the iPads home. I use the iPads to house a copy of everything and also have their stories there. This allows the stories to be read to the students that need it. In their notebooks they have all of their notes and resources including a copy of the stories. While we embrace the technology I need to make sure that their accommodations are also met.
