This is just one of a series of sketchnotes by Sherrill Knezel.

I have been a sketchnoter all of my life, but didn't know it! I stumbled on The Sketchnote Handbook a couple of years ago and finally had a name for it.  As an elementary art educator I immediately started introducing sketchnoting to my 3rd-5th grade students in the form of a short warm-up each week.  We listen to everything from Kid President talks to StoryCorps stories and they draw.  Kids draw before they write and are naturals at it! Some of the best visual icons I use have come from my students.
I have become a passionate advocate for sketchnoting in education and lead workshops on visual literacy and visual note taking for teachers in my district. I created this sketchnote as an advocacy piece to share with my district administrators.
Through the sketchnote community I have connected with amazing educators and graphic recorders working to promote all things visual.
Thanks for all you do for the sketchnote community!
I can't refrain myself to underline this sentence:
Kids draw before they write and are naturals at it! 

I strongly suggest to visit Sherrill'f Flickr photostream : it's so inspiring!

I love your crisp and clear style, Sherrill.
