Interactive Notebooks: Day 1

Interactive Notebooks: Day 1

I started my graduate research today. I'm studying student retention of concepts. My hypothesis is that if the students take notes in an interactive, creative way that approaches the material from a different way than just seeking to comprehend it that they will remember it better. It should be interesting to see.

I pretested the students on their knowledge of genetics last week. It was a short 3 question test, so it just gave me an idea of how much they understood before we went into the unit on transcription and translation.

Today, I gave the students a questionnaire about how often they took notes in class. We shall see how this works.
