By incorporating coloring and drawing into note-taking, students engage both sides of their brain, increasing their likelihood to remember what they learned.
Included in this .zip file:
• Blank doodle notes for students
• Teacher copy with a key
• Presentation with doodle note information for teaching purposes (editable)
This doodle note is my review/overview day for my sophomores’ poetry unit. I have them color each side of their prose vs. poetry notes (we fill it in using group discussion, and I just lead students to any characteristics they did not think of on their own). Then, I encourage them to color each term a different color, and when they practice with “A Good Poem”, they use those same colors as above.
If students want to color more, they can do that on their own time.
I usually follow these notes with a review of figurative language - either a scavenger hunt for examples in music, or my Bingo game - linked first below!
