Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Bouncing Off an Author Presentation - Section 3: Application


I don't use the binding machine very often, which is the first clue that mistakes were made here. In the past, anything I have put together in a book Reflection Letters lesson link happened to be written or drawn on copy paper, but that was just fortunate luck.  It's hard to believe that after twenty-one years of teaching, I didn't realize it had to be on copy paper, but I didn't.   I now know it's nearly impossible to use the thing if notebook paper is involved. 

My book turned out ok, but is rather delicate due to some hole-punching that went awry.  A solution is to glue the notebook paper on copy paper before making the book or......NEVER USE NOTEBOOK PAPER IN THE BINDING MACHINE!
