Interactive Notebooks & Hands-on Learning: Engaging Middle & High School Students

February 24, 2017

This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about interactive notebooks and hands-on learning in the ELA classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed hands-on activities like scrambles and foldables. Teachers also shared the positives of using interactive notebooks at the secondary level.

Read through the chat below to see pictures of favorite interactive notebook pages. You'll get ideas about how to plan out an interactive notebook for a unit or for the year. You'll also find ways to minimize time spent of cutting and pasting.

Hope you'll join us on Tuesday February 28th to discuss teaching novels in the ELA classroom. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
