Students deserve to express themselves in a multitude of ways. Visual notetaking, or sketchnoting, is a versatile thinking tool that provides choice, boosts engagement, extends recall, and invites deeper comprehension. In this K-12 session, we'll identify the research and then get practical. We'll learn how to get started as a sketchnoter, how to launch this practice with students, and see how teachers across grade levels and content areas have welcomed sketchnoting into their instructional repertoires...all with pen or stylus in hand!

We'll collaborate through frequent opportunities for turn and talk, viewing teacher/student work samples from around the SW Ohio area, and taking time for making/creating a meaningful sketchnote.
