We’ve come a long way from teachers admonishing students to put away their drawings and take traditional long-form notes. Let’s be honest: note-taking is boring and it isn’t always the most effective way to retain information. This book is a guide for teachers about getting students drawing and sketching to learn visually. Whether students are in elementary school or high school, visual learning can be an effective tool to help them retain information. The techniques in this book will help you work with your students in novel ways to retain information. Visual note-taking can be used with diverse learners; all ages; and those who have no drawing experience. The book provides a library of images and concepts to steal, tweak, and use in any classroom. The book is liberally illustrated with student examples from both elementary and high school.
