Reflection: Routines and Procedures There's a method to the madness - Section 3: Introduce New Material


My class motto is, “A loose paper is a lost paper” and I encourage students to place every paper that I issue and return, in addition to their notes and homework in their science binder (I refer to as "notebook").  I perform monthly notebook checks for a grade to monitor this class requirement and hole punch handouts I give them to aid in this process.  I feel that is important that students maintain a notebook as it not only teaches students how to become organized by requiring them to manage multiple classes and assignments, but it also serves as a reference for later in the year when students take the year end cumulative state test.  I have noticed over the years that each student who has adhered to the mandatory notebook requirement performed well in the class and those who did not maintain a notebook did not perform well in the class.  Interestingly, on the end of year student survey I conduct, students note that keeping a notebook is one of the activities that help them prepare for the year end cumulative state test.
