I’ve been asked, “How do you use the eight-page bound-book-style Foldables* in class instruction?” and, “How do I get my students to stay organized?” Here’s a look at how I proceed. Usually on the second or third day of school my students bring a blank composition book to class. I often buy about 20 of these for those who forget or can’t afford the materials. I make a small label for each student to complete and I bring a stack of scrap-booking paper cut into half sheets. Students pick a sheet that “speaks to them.” They glue the colored paper to the composition book, then glue the completed label on top of the colorful sheet. Then, we use 2-inch wide clear packing tape and cover the entire front of the book with about 5 strips of tape. The tape is trimmed neatly around the front cover and we are now ready to create our very own Algebra 2 (Pre-Calculus) Journal on our journey in mathematics. Here’s my personal copy for this school year.
I LOVE TEACHING THE FUTURE!
