Things to Actions

Drawing embedded in any learning experience will increase the interactivity and enjoyment of the lesson. If students are themselves actively drawing, it will also increase their retention <ref>. In the first section we looked at ways to build your visual vocabulary and confidence in making marks, and meaning. Here we want to harness that vocabulary to brainstorm ideas, tell stories, build presentations and facilitate conversations. These activities are best used in groups, and can involve sharing drawings amongst the class. It is recommended you have gained some trust from your students and will be respectful of their work when showing it, or having a gallery walk. Because drawings can move quickly from topics external to oneself, to those deeply personal, a safe environment is important to consider.
