Using Interactive Notebooks for Inquiry-Based Science

This article about using interactive notebooks for inquiry-based science can be found on the National Science Teachers Association website. This article by Robert Chesbro is all about how to effectively implement interactive notebooks in the classroom for science instruction in order for students to be able to remember what they’ve learned in science, link what they’ve learned with their own personal experiences, and how teachers can better differentiate assignments for students using these notebooks for science. This article discusses the tailored model of Jocelyn Young’s publication Science Interactive Notebooks in the Classroom for using inquiry-based notebooks in science. This article discusses how students can set up their notebooks and how teachers can assess the notebooks periodically throughout the year. This article includes an Assessment rubric, Student handout detailing input and output, as well as student samples of notebook entries they’ve made for specific science experiments they worked with in their classrooms.
