Creekside South - Judson University

Tanny McGregorThinking with a Pen in Hand: Using Sketchnote to Increase Comprehension and Focus

Students deserve to express themselves in a multitude of ways. Visual notetaking, or sketchnoting, is a versatile thinking tool that provides choice, boosts engagement, extends recall, and invites deeper comprehension. In this session, we'll identify the research and then get practical. You'll learn how to get started as a sketchnoter, how to launch this practice with students, and see how teachers across grade levels and content areas have welcomed sketchnoting into their instructional repertoires...all with pen or stylus in hand!

Trevor Bryan

The Art of Comprehension

Discover a teacher- and student-friendly approach to teaching comprehension! In the K-3 session, Trevor will share an approach that is grounded in visual texts to support non-readers, emerging readers and striving readers. Learn how easily transferable it is to written text to support soaring readers as well. Trevor will share how this will approach also support students as writers. In the 4-12 session, discover how Trevor's approach will help readers notice key details, make inferences, discuss symbolism, identify possible themes, and make strong text-to connections. Learn how this approach also helps writers generate workable story ideas, use story-structure effectively, show not tell, and elaborate.
