In this post-truth environment, where alternate facts and false stats are on the rise, critical thinking, analytical debate, and ethical reasoning and are more important than ever. Yet, with traditional teaching methods seemingly more and more ineffective, my challenge has been to find creative and engaging material that will help 21st century learners excel. I have developed a variety of unique essay alternatives that focus on innovative teaching alternatives that engage but challenge all of my students. This product bundles together three assignments.

Visual Notetaking - rubric and student examples
In all of my first year undergraduate classes I employ Visual Notetaking as a way to engage my students in the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. I always find this assignment rewarding for my students - a helpful way to study, a different type of assignment, a way to engage visual learners, and I am always surprised by their work.
In order for your students to excel in this activity, they need to see examples and understand how they will be graded. Provided here is a beautiful rubric for visual notetaking using visual notetaking. Furthermore, there are six examples from my own lectures.
Included in this unit are the following:
➢ A rubric that shows students what is expected in their finished product. It provides a beautiful guide in the form of visual notetaking.
➢ The points from the visual notetaking rubric that can be handed out to students.
➢ Student examples - I use student examples from previous semesters to help my class understand my expectations. There are six included - my examples are from my lectures on various Great Books: Nietzsche, Plato, and Thucydides. I have some TpT units that cover the same or similar material that is used during my lectures for these projects - see the preview for details.
****four more images added for a total of 10 images****

The ELA Common Core State Standards require students to learn how to read texts carefully:
“As a natural outgrowth of meeting the charge to define college and career readiness, the Standards also lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the twenty-first century. Indeed, the skills and understandings students are expected to demonstrate have wide applicability outside the classroom or workplace. Students who meet the Standards readily undertake the close, attentive reading that is at the heart of understanding and enjoying complex works of literature. They habitually perform the critical reading necessary to pick carefully through the staggering amount of information available today in print and digitally. They actively seek the wide, deep, and thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational texts that builds knowledge, enlarges experience, and broadens worldviews. They reflexively demonstrate the cogent reasoning and use of evidence that is essential to both private deliberation and responsible citizenship in a democratic republic. In short, students who meet the Standards develop the skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening that are the foundation for any creative and purposeful expression in language.” English Language Arts Standards | Home | English Language Arts
