Reflection: Accountability Designing an Eco-friendly Building Part 1 - Section 3: Design Problem Rationale


I like to use Science Notebooks for several reasons. It is easier for me to assess student work in the notebook as opposed to loose papers. I use stamps to "grade as I go" so when it comes to summative assessment, I have already looked over the work of my students and can easily grade. In this lesson the notebook becomes the reference for information. Many times students put a lot of intelligence and effort into their lessons and then never use them. I like my strategy Find a Fact, because students look through their lessons to work on the  current lesson. This refreshes the learning and helps students make connections between lessons.
