This study aims at determining if an interactive science notebook provides evidence for and facilitates the application of new knowledge. In Science classrooms, notebooks are u.sed in a variety of ways. Even with all the different notebook formats and functions, they are often used ineffectively. Many notebooks are missing evidence of student higher order thinking instead they are repositories of information. Interactive notebooks are one format specifically designed with the function of capturing higher order thinking. An 8th grade accelerated science class will u.se an interactive notebook, modeled after the History Alive interactive notebook. Students will be survey before, during and after the notebook u.se to determine what they were thinking and how they used the· notebook. Audio and videotape as well as interviews will also be conducted during the notebook use to evaluate conversations and body language while working in the notebook.
