We might even be encouraged by colleagues or instructional coaches to include sketchnoting as a response option for our students.

Sketchnotes are way more than just a pretty page; they are thinking made visible. They also:

  • allow for student choice
  • help strengthen memory
  • make annotation thinking-intensive
  • enhance focus and reduce stress
  • embrace design
