Tackle theme with a twist with these engaging, visually appealing doodle notes that allow students to color and doodle. Doodle notes activate BOTH sides of the brain to deepen understanding! These notes will increase engagement and retention. They're perfect for visual learners or ELL students, but ALL students will enjoy them, too.
This theme doodle note template breaks down the sometimes-challenging task of determining theme. Students will explain the conflict and resolution, brainstorm the "big ideas" of the text, explain the text's real-world relevance, describe a theme, and support it with textual evidence.
This is truly an activity that is FUN and ENGAGING but does not sacrifice one ounce of rigor. Your students will thank you later.
