I am one of those big nerds that still has my science work from when I was in high school. That binder that was so painful to keep up with at the time? It became a valuable resource in college when I was looking to jog my memory about something, or needed something in simpler terms. (I am not THAT old, but the internet was not what it is today.)
I want my students to have that resource when they are in college. Maybe they will major in science! Although our ISN (interactive science notebooks) are a work in progress, I am pretty pleased with a few. Now to get everyone in the class taking notes like this!
