Sketcho Frenzy has some really excellent how-to videos about sketchnotes on YouTube. I did show them the Basics video that illustrated all three elements before we began practicing each element individually. When we began working on text, I showed them the Typography video (above).
While we were watching the video I asked the class to call out which words popped out at them when the page was turned. We talked about what types of lettering stood out the most and how we might apply these strategies to create emphasis, hierarchy, and distinction in our own note taking. The students liked that the quotes in the video were all song quotes and the first few times we did this they used quotes that they liked, mostly song lyrics.
Sketch Quotes from this week's english class:
If you are familiar with the book "Notice and Note" (Kylene Beers & Robert E. Probst) you will recognize some similarities to their "sign posts" on the list. I don't have them posted in my class but I did read the book a couple of years ago. I notice and note things when I read aloud in class that the students must be picking up on because they are on our list.
How do I choose what to quote?
Updates: I have Created a Hyperdoc for this lesson and added some additional resources below
An important note about using another teacher's HyperDoc lessons: go through the lesson and look for assignment links that you need to change before your students use the lesson. This lesson on "SketchQuotes" contains a task that asks students to submit work to a shared slide deck. Copy that slide deck too and replace my link with yours. If you don't make your own copy of the shared slide deck, your students' work will be submitted to my class.
