19 Your Turn (aka: Toby’s Adventure Trail)  Using your own curriculum and the supplies on your table, create an interactive notebook page.  The right will be information you give to your students – lecture, guided reading, vocabulary…  The left will be an activity that causes the students to interact with what is on the right side. They might use pictures, organizers, foldables, poetry….  The end result will be an exemplar you can use with students.

20 Discussion Questions:  1. What benefits do you see for you and for students if you implement an interactive notebook system?  2. What problems do you anticipate? And What can be done in order to overcome those problems?  3. How can you incorporate a lesson you will teach soon into an interactive notebook?
