Visual Notetaking - 6th grade style

So, we are halfway (or so) through the year and most of my students are pros at notetaking.  They keep 3 notebooks covering 5 subjects and notes can get a little boring for them.  I began introducing Visual Notetaking to the ones who are ready to move on and put their own personality into their notes.  Austin Kleon is awesome at introducing some basics that are do-able for my kids.  Check out his website http://www.austinkleon.com/visual-note-taking/  and books.  Another great resource is Sunni Brown.  This is a hot trend in business right now, so a google image search will result in a boatload of great pics.

This week we are just covering the basics of fiction and non-fiction genres.  Basic notes and vocabulary so I thought it would be a good week to spice it up.  This is what one group started with yesterday...

Stay tuned for more as the week progresses...
