Can you describe more in detail
how you color coded the notebooks
for the students? Do you already give them number pages of the activities? Is this similar to a syllabus?
Do you teach Read 180 or is this something that you are planning on doing for a different class?
Here's how I organized the notebooks for my Read 180 class:
1) White pages - TWPS (think-write-pair-shares)
2) Blue pages - Scaffolded writing
3) Green Pages - Vocabulary
4) Yellow Pages - Quickwrites
5) Pink Pages - Reading Logs
Most of these items are original documents that I wrote for my purposes. The colors really don't matter so long as they are different and you can make sure that none of the students are lost with a glance.
If you do teach Read 180 and want a copy of the files so that you can have them for you class you can email me at JLim@emuhsd.k12.ca.us
