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 your students drawing and sketching to learn visually. Whether in primary or secondary school, neuroscience has shown that visual learning is a very effective way to 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. Teachers are provided with a library of images and concepts to steal, tweak and use in any way in their classrooms. The book is liberally illustrated with student examples from elementary and high school students alike.

Wendi Pillars has done a masterful job of showing how and why we teachers and our students can benefit from applying a learning and note-taking strategy many of us don't know much about. And, happily, it's a strategy that involves drawing, which our students are happy to do!-- (01/29/2016)
