AMERICAN HISTORY
Interactive Student Notebook

The Interactive Student Notebook is used in class to help students organize the information discussed in class.  The Interactive Student Notebook strategy also helps students to interact more with the class materials as they process the lessons.
 
PowerPoint presentations are often used in class to present information and facilitate discussions.  PowerPoint helps to pair the auditory with the visual.
 
On the following pages I have tried to re-create the in-class lessons, activities, and presentations, following the LEFT SIDE - RIGHT SIDE format of the Interactive Student Notebook.
