Reflection: Rigor Atom Model Demonstration - Section 3: Teacher Demonstration

 

I require my students to use colored pencils and highlighters when making diagrams in my class. I'm not sure of the exact learning theory, but I am convinced that making diagrams visually pleasing using color activates a part of the brain that encourages learning. It might also have to do with the fact that good looking drawings require planning and forethought which involves higher order thinking skills. This would be fun to research further.
