Algebra 1 Syllabus Brochure

Today I’m sharing the Algebra 1 syllabus I created for my students to glue in their interactive notebooks.

So many of my students were unfamiliar with the word “syllabus.”  Throughout middle school, high school, and college, I was always presented with a syllabus at the beginning of the year.  Some were more detailed than others, but it was expected that we would go over the syllabus sometime during the first week of school.

Thanks to some twitter inspiration, I formatted my syllabus as a brochure.  I mainly did this so that students would be able to glue their syllabus into their interactive notebooks.  For the front of the brochure, I modified Dan Meyer’s syllabus template.

I am going into my semester of student teaching in the spring and will also be teaching two algebra courses! I love this idea of creating an interactive notebook that looks more fun and engaging instead of the traditional lecture/notes idea. I think this would be great for all students, especially visual learners as there are so many foldable and clearly labeled pages and color-coding. My question is do you do this with your students every class period and does it take up a lot of time for the pages that you have to cut flaps/etc.? Overall, I think this is such a great idea and would also love to look into creating a virtual interactive notebook with my students! Thanks for sharing!!

Some weeks we do lots of notebooking. Other weeks we do hardly any. Cutting and gluing does take some time, but my students actually learn to use their notebooks as a reference. So, I think it's a good investment.

I want to thank you for taking the time to create this blog. I am a former first and second grade teacher that now homeschool my children. My oldest is in the throws of algebra and using your ideas will help us navigate through it all. (I guess I didn't retain a heck of a lot.)

Each of these foldables should have it's own separate blog post with the files attached. There is a search bar in the right hand column that should help you find them. Good luck with your first year of teaching! Let me know if there's ever anything I can help you with!
