Why assign a notebook project? You want to engage your students in active research and have them organize and report what they’ve learned.

The benefit of using this type of resource: It will enable students to be creative, independent thinkers and writers. It will allow your students to express their ideas in unique ways and process information they are learning. Their finished notebook projects will become a valuable study tool for students to reflect back on, and are great as a record of student progress over time.
