Ink & Ideas is a lifetime in the making. Tanny McGregor has been thinking with a pen in her hand, putting words and pictures together for as long as she's been reading. Sketchnoting, also known as visual notetaking, helps make your thinking visible, visual, and meaningful. All kinds of people sketchnote, for all kinds of reasons. By introducing sketchnoting in your classroom, you will provide opportunities for your students to engage with and explore their thinking with what they are reading, listening to, or viewing.

Ink & Ideas is Tanny's tried and true toolkit to get you and your students started, including templates, tools, suggested reading, ideas, inspiration, and more. She outlines the how and why behind visual notetaking, including research and benefits, providing everything you need to introduce and launch sketchnoting across grade levels and content areas.

A different kind of thinking happens with pen in hand. With sketchnoting, the one who holds the pen holds the power. Only the thinker decides what appears on the page, and how. Open up a window into your students' brilliant minds and watch their thinking become visible as they sketchnote their way to deeper understanding and new ideas.
