9/9/2021 Sketchnoting: Visual Notetaking for Deeper Comprehension, Focus, and Retention

Thursday, September 9, 2021 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM

Join us on September 9th for an in-person session with internationally-known teacher and conference speaker Tanny McGregor. She is the author of three books, Comprehension Connections: Bridges to Strategic Reading, Genre Connections: Lessons to Launch Literary and Nonfiction Texts, and her newest release, Ink & Ideas: Sketchnotes for Engagement, Comprehension, and Thinking.

Students deserve to express themselves in a multitude of ways. Visual notetaking, or sketchnoting, is a versatile thinking tool that provides choice, boosts engagement, extends recall, and invites deeper comprehension. In this session, we will identify the research and then get practical. You will learn how to get started as a sketchnoter, how to launch this practice with students, and see how teachers across grade levels and content areas have welcomed sketchnoting into their instructional repertoires…all with pen or stylus in hand!
