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

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

Below, Tanny McGregor offers further insight into the myriad benefits sketchnotes have to offer!
