Editorial Reviews

Review

Teaching Science With Interactive Notebooks provides teacher-friendly, practical advice for strategies that all science teachers can use.” (From the Foreword by Rodger W. Bybee 2009-12-03)

"Highly recommend this book to science teachers who want to do science notebooks but fear the drudgery that sometimes is associated with them. The interactive notebooks that Marcarelli creates not only are interesting for the teacher but also fun and motivating for students." (NSTA Recommends 2010-11-17)

"Marcarelli’s book provides teachers with research-based strategies that actively engage students in their own learning. With interactive notebooks, students learn how to collect and organize scientific information and how to communicate and refine their thinking. Moreover, students take ownership and pride in their work. This book is a valuable tool that every science teacher should have. (Don Whisman, Vice Principal and Director 2010-02-04)

"A powerful reference that will be full of my sticky notes and used daily." (Jennifer Weibert, District Science Coach 2010-02-04)

“In an era when science teachers are being asked more and more to teach writing skills and build science literacy, this book presents an engaging and creative way to answer that challenge and encourage the use of higher-order thinking skills.” (Michael Baker, Eighth-Grade Science Teacher 2009-12-03)

"Whether they are doing hands-on investigation, synthesizing a piece of text, or researching online, my students do the work of scientists by creating something every day in their science notebooks. The notebooks are veritable portfolios of their thinking. My students take pride in collecting daily evidence of their work and are better able to organize, focus, and reflect on their learning in the notebook spread. Because I am planning with the notebook in mind, my lessons are clearer and the structure allows us to focus on the learning at hand. I can’t imagine not using them. This is not rocket science, just good teaching!” (David Rothauser, Science Teacher 2010-02-17)

“Easy to read, with good examples and illustrations. The rationale is spelled out for every step, the setup for the interactive notebook is clearly explained, and you can hear the enthusiasm of the author, which makes the reader enthusiastic about trying the strategy.” (Maria Mesires, Seventh-Grade Science Teacher 2009-12-03)

"Interactive notebooks are awesome. This book gives you step-by-step instructions on what they are, their many uses, and day to day instructions on getting them up and running smoothly in your classroom." (Meghan Mathis Teach Hub.com 2012-05-02)

By the way, this is a very easy read!

I love the notebooks we've created in my 7th grade science classes!

There are examples of student notebooks to use as a guide.

Edited on December 17, 2011 to add: Since posting this review, my use of interactive notebooks in my science classes has become much more intensive and sophisticated. I continue to refer back to this book to refine what I am doing, increase student engagement and help the students make their notebooks into tools that they maintain with zeal and guard with care. Not everything I do came from this book, but this is the book that got me started using notebooks so that they now contain a complete and detailed record of all that the kids study through the year. Looking at any student's notebook, I can quickly tell a parent or administrator exactly what that student knows and exactly which standards, objectives, vocabulary, and content knowledge have been covered during the year.

The original review follows:

Having used notebooks for reading and writing in lower grades, I was already convinced of the value of having students keep notebooks when I became a science teacher several years ago. I was unsure however, how to apply or modify the techniques and activities I had learned from studying the methods of Pinnel and Fountas in the science classroom.

With an awareness however, that "real scientists" are adamant about keeping timely and accurate notes, and a general feeling that students leave school not really knowing how to use a notebook as an efficient and powerful study aid and learning tool, I resolved to move forward with my own version of an "interactive science notebook". The results were promising. But after two years, I continued to feel that my student's notebooks were less than I had hoped for. Unfortunately I found little in the professional literature to help me help my students to keep better and more useful science notes.

Every teacher should read and put this into their "best practices" We have seen a turn around in motivation vs. apathy with every level of student.

I purchased this because I am a biology teacher in an urban high school. Attendance for quite a few students is so poor and it is a struggle to teach content in innovative and acceptably challenging ways. I read through this book and began planning for next year and it is making me even more excited about teaching. It supports inquiry based learning and differentiated instruction. I am so excited about this approach!!!

This book was a perfect intro for someone who has not implemented interactive science notebooks. It has guided me through my first year working with ISNs and I love it. My only comment is the book doesnt really address absences and make-up work.

This book is just what I needed to get started with interactive notebooks in my classroom. Gave very specific guidance and examples. Interactive notebooks really give the students ownership of their work and are very reflective in nature!

I've read quite a few books about interactive notebooks, and this has been the best by far. Worth the money.

I read your book the weekend before school started and I was able to incorporate them into my instruction the following week in three of my high school biology courses. With some adaptations I was able to make it work and some of my disorganized students are organized and on track. Thank you.
