Earlier this month, I posted about the project I assigned my Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 students in lieu of a semester test. Their assignment was to create 3 interactive notebook pages over 3 topics we studied this year. I was really impressed with what they submitted. Please note that these were all produced by my students, and there are several small mistakes sprinkled throughout them. If I do this project again, I think I will have students submit a rough draft for me to review before they complete their final drafts.

Many of my students chose to do their notebook pages over conic sections, but I'm saving those for a special post of their own. I know that I was definitely inspired by seeing what my students were able to create, and I hope that others can find something of use here, too.

What an awesome idea! Your students did an excellent job - you are such a creative teacher.

I have been teaching for 25 years and this is your 2nd year? Wow! rock on!!

ReplyDeleteTHANK YOU!

DeleteThis is a great idea! I want to try this with my students for the next unit in my Algebra 1 class on quadratics. I was very impressed with the student created quadratic formula flow chart. The flow chart highlighted the main steps and included a solution to an example that corresponds to the steps in the flow chart. This attention to details demonstrates mastery in the algebraic skill. Personally, It takes a lot of time for me to create foldables or graphic organizers and my biggest worry is whether it would be useful or meaningful to my students. My students organize their understanding in different ways. I feel that this activity will require my students to reflect on what they have learned and organize their thinking in a way that makes sense to them. I am excited to try this because many of my students are very creative and I cannot wait to see what they will come up with.
