Dear sketchnoting friends,

A new edition of my book, “How to Sketchnote: A Step-by-Step Manual for Teachers and Students” is now available with more activities, fonts, icons and lessons.

If you’re looking for the free #SKETCHNOTEFEVER lessons, click here.


Sketchnoting, or visual note-taking, is an effective and fun way to take notes using doodles and text. This book was designed with teachers and students in mind to begin sketchnoting in the classroom. I will guide you through many scaffolded activities to take you and your students from a “But I’m not an artist” mentality to “Hey, I can sketchnote!”

Included in the book are many links to how-to-draw videos and access to an online databank of sketchnoting icons. This book is a hands-on resource for anyone interested in learning how to take notes in a creative and meaningful way, with explicit instruction for how to teach students to sketchnote.

When you and your students start your sketchnoting journey, I do hope that you will share your creations (even if it’s just practicing drawing) with the #SKETCHNOTEFEVER hashtag on social media so that we can all celebrate with you!

Happy sketchnoting!
