Ok - let's start with the setup pages. Here's my table of contents - stars are beside the beginning of each unit. I'm going to use tabs this year as well to help students navigate their notebooks.
Rules & Parts of an ISN - I found this and adapted it to my needs.
This page was their rules guided notes - I adapted this off of this site.
And finally, in the back, this was their constant reminder of what they needed to have to get a good notebook grade at the end of the grading period.
The only other setup item I had was a front pocket (I had them tape in a half sheet of paper on three sides), and a QR code contact card shown in my previous post. This year, instead of a pocket, I'm having them tape in a CD envelope. I'm hoping it will keep the small pieces inside the notebook more effectively.
