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 elementary school or high school, ...more

I was looking for a sort-of... introduction to sketchnoting and grabbed this at the library. While it is fine and all, I am not the right audience for the language here. It is targeted to elementary educators I think and the upbeat, constant praise and energetic language just turned me off.

I found this book to be really interesting! There are definitely ideas presented here that I can take and use immediately in my classroom. I appreciated the brain research that backed up the author's ideas. I feel like it's too often that education books present ideas that seem good without really backing them up with evidence that they're best practice.

The format of the book (wide and short) really bugged me, though. It made it feel hard to read.

All educators should read this book. It is full of tips of how teaching and learning can be improved through educational sketches.

Excellent tool for teachers interested in helping students take good, meaningful notes while engaging with, and applying, the content. Pillars goes to great lengths to show how her ideas are built on current brain research.

Insightful and relevant

Im an adult who is not a teacher of children. Nevertheless, Wendi walks you through insights as to why adults are the way they are. As a concept, sketchnoting can be used by adults for the same reasons that edu-sketching can be used to help children.

Biased review--there are a million things I could've said, included, or described in more depth. Would have loved to enlarge the images, but we did the best we could. It was an intense and reflective writing journey, one I wouldn't trade for the world. I love what our students can do when given the opportunity. I do hope others will give it a try.
