Doodling the C’s – Lesson 06: Reading

How do we practice Information Age skills?  Which of the C’s do we actively engage with, share in the-struggle-to-learn with others, and intentionally insert into daily practice?

Creativity and innovation, Communication, Critical thinking and problem solving, Collaboration, …

Last week’s lesson was about listening.  Lesson 06 is about reading and comprehension.

Project:  Doodle as you read for comprehension.  Choose from 2 of the 3 choices listed below:

  1. Read an article, suggestions below.
  2. Reread a chapter of your summer reading selection.
  3. Step into student shoes. Be a listener during a read aloud by doodling to an audio book.

While reading:

    • Practice the technique of visually thinking about what you are reading.
    • Sketch in the margins, on Post-it Notes, or in your sketch-note notebook.
    • Be sure to document what you read to share with others.

Remember… It takes practice.

  • Share your poster with someone and ask for feedback.
  • Scan or take a photo of your work and insert it in your Doodling the C’s Google doc, on your blog, or in your My Learning portfolio.
  • Bonus: Tweet a copy of your poster using the hashtags #ShowYourWork #TrinityLearns (or your school’s hashtag)
