Ancient River Civilizations is a Notebooking Central booklet featured in our Topic Investigation series. The Notebook Foldables found in a Topic Investigation title are based on content standards that help students develop tested skills or achieve deeper understanding of the most important ideas associated with the topic. Instructional strategies that encourage critical thinking, self-questioning, observing, predicting, comparing, and analyzing graphics are also featured.
The Notebooking Central booklets and Topic Investigations are intended to complement Dinah Zike's Notebook Foldables for Spirals, Binders, & Composition Books book and companion CD, a 2011 Teachers' Choice Award winner.
The front tabs of Topic Foldables have memorable main ideas and graphics that students can underline, highlight, and enhance in ways that will individualize them. Students interact under the tabs by taking notes, summarizing, describing, questioning, explaining, sequencing, defining, diagramming, listing, and recording opinions, observations, or data. Notebook Foldables should generate meaningful discussions and debates that lead to student-generated questions, conclusions, and/or concerns that can be researched.
