I need to make it official. I wanted to try one new (feasible) thing in my classes this year, and I decided it would be ISNs (interactive student notebooks). I'm not rolling it out in all of my classes, just one. ISNs will now be part of my Algebra Block class. These kids are low level math students and get to be with me for two class periods everyday. Similar to the Read 180 program, if you've heard of it, I have an aide and we do three stations daily (the last station is the ALEKS program on the computers).
I want to do this. These kids need something more than just regular notes. I hope the ISN will assist me in getting these kids caught up with their regular Algebra 1 counterparts.
ISN starts Wednesday! Can't wait!!!
