Help your students activate both sides of the brain as they take notes while they read! This engaging method of taking notes allows for creativity and organization without sacrificing rigor. It can be a very helpful introduction to literature annotation as well.
Students will learn to hone in on unfamiliar vocabulary words, identify theme, make inferences about characters, find important quotes to cite, and list important details in the plot. It also allows students to doodle important elements from the story to help with retention and engagement.
These doodle notes can be used for ANY fiction or non-fiction story.
