Something your student is doing on a regular basis is keeping notes in their Interactive Notebook. Although we call it a folder, it is so much more. When used correctly, it is a means to help them study and sometimes we even put in assignments we completed in class for a grade. While Interactive Notebooks can be more complex, the main things I am looking for are questions and summaries for each entry. This is often a tedious task for students, but it gets them opening their notebooks outside of my class which helps them remember the content we have covered.
Here is the rubric I use when grading the Interactive Notebooks:
Data Tracker filled out and current- 25 points
All notes in order- 25 points
Two test questions per entry written by the student- 25 points
A summary for each entry- 25 points.
The number of entries we have at the IN check will determine the value of each individual item.
