I have been looking and "researching" everyone's ISNs (Interactive Student Notebooks)...more like creeping on everyone's blogs, pintrest, and websites. Lol.
I have come to the conclusion of several things:
1.) Students must feel like this is their "baby". They must be invested in this plain jane composition notebook. How do you do that? Well...I think they will take ownership of it when you allow them to make it their own by decorating it, doodling in it, and allowing them to put things in it that are meaningful to them. I may even add a section in the back of their notebooks that is just for them to put drawings, notes, doodles, etc in that will not be in the ToC (Table of Contents).
