When I first started teaching at a Leader in Me school, students used Data Binders to track their academic and behavioral progress. That was seven years ago! Now, Leadership Notebooks have replaced Data Binders and I think I've finally wrapped my brain around how they are different.
Frequency of Use
Data Binders were basically kept at school and just shared with families during conferences as the students led their parents through their graphs and tests that reflected their quarterly grades. Now, Leadership Notebooks are intended to go back and forth between home and school and give a more holistic picture of the child's development. No longer just seen during student-led conferences.
