Notebooks

Retro?

I don’t think so.  I will still continue to scribble ideas and words of wisdom that I read.  I cannot imagine abandoning my pens and highlighters in their vibrant colors.

I enjoy collecting notebooks.  By the way, I am not the only one. I discovered that there are several blogs and podcasts about pens and notebooks.

These are the ones I use to copy the original, practical ideas of creative educators.

I keep a French looking, made in China, notebook that I call ‘Odds and Sods to Share with students.’

Tomorrow I will tell my ELLs that Harvard is right.  When interacting and annotating text, students should give the ubiquitous highlighter a rest and use pencil to underline and circle.

Research into retrieval strategies that best help students include the flash card.  The highlighter effect on revising is similar to coloring in with a puce-clored Crayola marker.

Got to love Quizlet.
