The interactive student notebook (ISN) has been around since the 1970s.  Like all great ideas, it is timeless.  Since ISNs are the heart of how students respond to TCI lessons, we have lots of tools that we use to teach how to create great notebooks in digital or print.  These tools may be webinars, a free lesson on the interactive student notebook, or even from our methods book.  We are proud to offer you the opportunity to download select pages from the methods book on the topic of the ISN (seen below).  If you have a TCI Subscription, you also have access to the entire methods book under your “Program Resources” tab.  If you don’t have TCI in your classroom and want to see how we marry great strategies with the ISN, then visit: to try it for yourself today.

Many of you have also been using the ISN for years.  What tips do you have to share?  Do you have any links that you’d like to pass along to other teachers?  Comment in and share them!
