Math/Science Notebooking Part 4

Part 4 of this series is dedicated to assessing notebooks/journals. I give a notebook grade at least once every 6 weeks. I feel that it is important to not only ensure that students are following directions and organizing their journals in the same way the teacher is, but also to certify that the information in the notebook is accurate (for future reference). This task could become rather cumbersome with my 50-60 students. To make the notebooks easier to assess, motivate my students a little more, and avoid being subjective in grading, I developed a rubric. (I haven't formally used a notebook rubric one in the past so I am excited to get to use one this year!) Feel free to download your free copy of each rubric by clicking on the picture:

  5. Thank you for sharing this great rubric. I have graded about 20 of my 60 Math notebooks for the first marking period. 40 to go in a week....... YIKES. I'm wondering what your system is for grading them? I am planning on doing it quarterly, with each marking period.

    Thank you! Jodi

  9. Hi! I love your maths notebooks - they're fantastic! I was just wondering how I can access your rubric because the link to your store doesn't have them?? Not sure what I'm doing wrong! Feeling very inspired to start them with my 5th grade class. :)
