How will the things i learned influence my practice
How will the things I learned influence my practice?

  • Confirms for me that my present science notebook ideas is an effective assessment tool, researched based, and since it is such an effective tool I will enhance the features.

  • I know that it is crucial to design effective formative assessment that allows the students opportunities to experiment and formulate explanations for their findings.  

  • Redesign my lessons so that the students can create, analyze their data, and form conclusions following their experimentations.

  • I know how to use the notebooks to make meaning and help the students develop a deeper understanding of science content from my instructions.

  • This information will encourage me to teach my students in a way where they will to be able to meet the standards; to teach them how to make predictions, think critically and logically, communication their scientific findings in written and verbal forms, and make explanations of the world unknown.

How will i apply new knowledge to teaching

  • Enhance my current method of science notebook use.

  • Include the seven key components in every investigation; prose the question or problem, predictions, develop a plan, using observations create, data, charts, graphs, drawings or illustrations, make claims and evidence, draw conclusion, and write reflections.

  • Make a rubric to include in journals prior to unit.

  • Incorporate a glossary of terms in the back.

  • Write constructive, effective, feedback comments that is appropriate evaluations of the student’s work.

  • Use the book as guide to remind me of the correct format and strategies to using a science notebook.

What actions will i take in my schools and beyond
What actions will I take in my schools and beyond?

  • Provide other teachers with professional development opportunities to learn.

  • Share samples of old journals from my classroom.

  • Write a grant to include journals for all of the students in 3rd – 8th grade in the building.

  • Provide a professional development course for Science Notebooks.
