I have started using interactive notebooks with my 9th grade history students, and I am loving the concept. Interactive notebooks have helped me to really improve how I teach and how my students learn. I use the left side for notes/info and the right side for processing/creative tasks.

At the same time, I am teaching psychology. And I know people often make the distinction between left brain and right brain tasks. Although I am pretty sure "left vs. right brain" thinking is largely oversimplified. I used this logic when I had my students set up their interactive notebooks.

I've noticed a lot of teachers use the right side of the interactive notebooks for class notes. This seems to go against left vs. right brain thinking. Overthinking this I know.... Have you noticed this?
