Pitfalls and Promises of Interactive Science Notebooks – Podcast Episode 79 | Classnotes Podcast 79
Classnotes Podcast (October 15, 2010) Assessments show that many students are not able to demonstrate application of science content. But teachers can use interactive notebooks to enhance their students’ interaction with the curriculum as they reflect and build academic knowledge. This strategy can be particularly powerful for English learners as they practice writing about science and sharing their learning with other students. Veronica Betancourt , M.A., an IDRA education associate and developer of IDRA’s Science Smart! model, discusses the power of interactive science notebooks in the classroom, how to integrate the strategy in the school, and ways administrators can support their success.
Veronica is interviewed by and Bradley Scott, Ph.D., director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity.
