From the California Academy of Sciences comes the Science Notebook Corner, a resource designed to help K-12 science teachers support young learners develop note taking skills, organization skills, and metacognition. Visitors may want to start by checking out Science Notebooks in Action, a series of short videos that outline the different ways "science notebooking" can be used in the classroom. From here, educators can check out a number of introductory activities that can aid in implementing science notebooks into the classroom. These activities include a lesson plan to introduce students to scientific sketching and advice for how science instructors can use notebooks in student assessment. The Science Notebook Corner also offers a number of guides on how to support students in developing specific note taking skills, such as data collection, active reading strategies, and taking notes on field trips. While aimed specifically at elementary school science teachers, this website provides material that may be of interest to educators of other content areas looking for ways to incorporate literacy skills into their classroom.
