talk2ham.1 Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 I like the concept of journaling and prompting students to think and respond in a journal to all aspects of learning. But I would like to know why such a simple concept as keeping a journal in school can get so complicated as to require membership fees of a hundred dollars or more at certain websites. :001_huh: There must be something that I'm missing about this current homeschooling craze. For example, I am looking at some notebooking activities and thinking that it is about the same as lap-booking. And I'm also looking at some and thinking, what's the difference between this and what they are already doing in their textbook: this activity is basically transferring what is already in their text to a journal? With some "notebooking pages" it looks like mom did all the beautification and text transfer except for filling in the blank. Which then begs the question, why is it going to help the kiddo so much more than just using the textbook would? But I'm sure there's more to it than this. Maybe there's confusion about this tool out there? Maybe I'm just getting a smattering and not the heart of the tool? Maybe some people are calling things "notebooking" that aren't notebooking at all but just another collection of supplemental activities?
