    interactive notebooks
    By Elaine McLarty

    I use interactive notebooks extensively as part of the History Alive curriculum taught at my school.

    I collect the notebooks at least every four weeks and randomly select four or five pages to grade during each review (I'll grade the same selections for one class, another set for the next class). I will collect one period every day until I've gone through all of the classes. About a week before I do these scheduled checks, I send a rubric home that provides the table of contents and a grading rubric. Each student must complete the rubric and I give bonus points for a parent's signature. In addition, I conduct random checks about once a week. I love the notebooks but they are difficult for some kids.
