My quest for the 2018-19 school year was to incorporate visuals to help students develop full schema around concepts. I started using more and more visuals in my advanced history classes per my students requests, so I wanted to incorporate that insight into my AP Government Class. Using visuals really helps students develop a more complex schema for a concept, as well as develop their analytical and critical thinking skills. This supports the transfer to other aspects of testing and writing. While my journey has not ended, I want to share my insights and lessons, so others can begin a journey of their own.
