What are SketchNotes? SketchNotes are rich visual notes created from a mix of handwriting, drawings, hand-drawn typography, shapes, and visual elements like arrows, boxes, and lines. As educators recognize the importance of student learning styles and the differences between linear and non-linear thinking, a “SketchNote revolution ” is emerging. Gone are the days of teachers scolding students for drawing in the back of the classroom—now experts know that doodlers gain a 29 percent increase in information retention.
This worksheet goes along with this excellent Jamestown song:
This song covers all the standards in enough depth for a quick lesson. It can also accompany or enhance a planned lecture.
Students can stop and pause the video or the teacher can lead, pausing at the moments that are prompted by the SketchNotes.
Print and Play....easy and engaging!
