⚠ What are Doodle Notes?
It's a method of revising or introducing a topic, coined by TpT Author Math Giraffe that increases student memory, learning and focus. Doodle notes are basically graphic organisers or guided note/work sheet, but with "brain-friendly upgrades" that allow students to make connections to the text/content in ways they normally wouldn't. Students make these connections by color-coding, drawing patterns, doodling and otherwise *owning* the information in front of them. There is no "right way" to utilize doodle note resources, but it is recommended that the teacher models how to complete the sheet and the students follow along at the same time. Students should be doodling while the teacher is lecturing to create those neural pathways.
