When using Notebooking Central booklets, duplicate the pages you consider the most important, and use suggestions from other pages to generate your own ideas.  Present a concept, then have students outline and design their own Notebook Foldables. Please join our free e-group so we can keep you posted on new books in this series.  We will never share or sell our e-group list.  We hope to see you in the near future, either at conferences or at the Dinah Zike Academy.

Many of you have been using my Foldables (originally called 3D interactive graphic organizers) since the 1970s, and you have converted, or are in the process of converting, to Notebook Foldables.  Through the years, notebooking in many forms has proven effective for generating, collecting, and organizing activities for instruction, practice, and assessment.  Notebooking also provides a venue for recording student observations, questions, and opinions while immersing students in academic  vocabulary.

Notebook Foldables can easily be integrated into any notebooking program.  For more in-depth information on Notebook Foldables strategies, you might view my Notebook Foldables® book and CD, which won a 2011 Teachers’ Choice Award.
