Visual Note Taking: Right Wing American History


I have never been a good note taker for as long as I can remember. I have also never been the artistic type either! So this was a difficult assignment for me. I struggled so much in even theorizing what I could draw. The best I could do was a small elephant and even that was difficult! I normally just write all of my notes down in bullet point form down the page (if I even take notes at all) without many headers.

For this, I split the notes into 3 different sections with lines connecting the bullet points to the corresponding topic or person. While it might not look nearly as visual or visually pleasing as others, this is a big step for me and has actually changed how I plan to take notes in the future. By splitting the notes up, I can break down the content into much smaller sections. With the arrows, I can put different content in different places and show the interconnectedness of different topics or people.

This was certainly challenging because of my lack of any visual foresight and creativeness. I do think this has helped me for the future as I this is certainly a step in the right direction for my note taking effectiveness, cleanliness, and overall appeal.
