Setting Up The Interactive Notebook!! Step by Step…
What is the IAN (Interactive Notebook)? • Definition - IAN is an organized collection of thoughts, ideas, sketches, data, and equations – a running record of the scientist’s thoughts.
Why The IAN?? • Note-taking becomes an active process • Students will organize as they learn • Uses both visual and linguistic intelligences • Reinforces reading, writing, & research skills • Forces teachers to balance between giving information and letting the students process it • Forces students to process information • Reminds teachers to give time to absorb • It gives students permission to be creative • Is a portfolio of learning students can keep

Left Vs. Right – What’s The Difference? • Turn to pages 2 and 3 of the notebook. • In order for people to “learn” a concept, they must not only be introduced to it and practice it, but they must be able to take that information and use it to create something else – they must implement it!
Left Vs. Right continued… • This is the foundation for the left vs. right pages • Right pages are where the information is coming in to the brain • Cornell Notes, definitions, etc… • Left pages are where the students show that they have processed information • See page 2 for ideas! THERE CAN NEVER BE A LEFT WITHOUT A RIGHT OR VICE VERSA…THEY GO TOGETHER LIKE PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY!!
