Teacher Tools: Sketchbook Project
After reflecting, I’ve realized that one place that I’d like to make stronger in my classes is the practice of process and using sketchbooks. I want to students of all levels to begin the practice of carrying a sketchbook wherever they go. Using it to write, draw, tape and glue bits and pieces that they find along their journey. Many students seem to think that a sketchbook needs to be beautiful and perfect because those are the sketchbooks that we see, those are the ones that people share.
A sketchbook project is a great place for students to explore, research, and gather inspiration.
Looking for more sketchbook inspiration, here are a few of my favorites.
