Skinny Book: The Multipurpose Learning Notebook
A MUST for ALL LEARNERS!
This creative use of the notebook allows students to learn and memorize the way their brains work best.
Using LOTS of white space (pages are unlined to allow the maximum use of creativity), a student writes half of his info on one side (i.e. Spanish Vocab Word) and the other half on the other side (i.e. English translation, or a quick doodle) then can flip it back on itself to quiz himself, or hold it up to quiz a partner. At the end of the course, he has a nice THIN personal dictionary to refer to as a record of all his vocabulary words... or hard math facts, or biology definitions, or a timeline of World War II, or difficult spelling words, or visionary plans for his future...
The point is, the SHAPE of the book inspires creativity, memory, and SMALL chinks of information that you can ACTUALLY learn. Then turn the page and tackle the next set of informational tidbits.
Keep it chunky and light! And remain MOTIVATED in all your school subjects.
