Day 3: Lab Notebook Organization

Imag1413

I've decided to go back to using lab notebooks. I'm not super prepared enough to have handouts for all my labs to put in their unit packets. I tried just doing labs in whiteboards last year, but with just one data recorder per group, I found land quickly turned into more socializing and less labbing. The notebook gives everyone something to write down.

I have one letter holder per group, coded by group color. Students must have their notebook every day. First group member to class gets all three notebooks (reduces traffic). If a student is absent, any handouts given can be easily slipped into that person's notebook by a fellow lab partner (reduces "did I miss any worksheets?").
