Product Description
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.

➢ A brief explanation of how I incorporate visual notetaking in my classes.
