FOLDABLE NOTES Devin Engledew Math Teacher, Lake Washington School
What is a “Foldable Note”? A foldable note is a three dimensional graphic organizer styled page of info in a student’s notebook Can take on a variety of forms, complexities and detail They “reinvent” the traditional style of writing notes
Foldable Notes Designed to further engage students in the mapping of their math learning Can be used effectively to present new information and/or to summarize content Might just reinvigorate your practice
“Foldable Notes” are NOT… …a time filler for class time …guaranteed to raise your test scores or make every kid understand …limited to just basic content WARNING!
More examples… (closed) (open)
Yet, more examples …
How does one “make” a Foldable Note? Here’s what you need: Source of inspiration - Colleague, friend, mentor - Pintrest, Social Networking, etc. Creativity Willingness (courage?) to take a risk The basic steps: 1)Brainstorm the “need to know info”? 2) How can that info be clearly mapped, organized, engaging for kids to create?! 3) Is it interactive?
Your turn! Your task: Create foldable note that could be used as an instructional tool for your students. 1. Choose a topic: Slope Types of angles Derivative/Integral rules FUNCTIONS 2. Brainstorm the “need to know info” 3. What could kids create? 4. Is it interactive?
