This interactive book from the author of Sketchnoting in the Classroom shows educators how to use the practice of dot journaling to develop a personalized system for time management, goal setting and more to improve productivity and save time.

We are living in an age when “hustle” and “grind” are part of our daily lives. While teachers are expected to stay on top of their lengthy to-do list, the demands on them are greater than ever. How can we provide the tools teachers and, by extension, their students need to declutter thoughts, manage time better, and remain focused and productive?

With her approachable style, educator and trainer Nichole Carter demonstrates how unlocking the creative brain can help improve mental health and problem-solving ability, as well as lead to better self-awareness and time management. Filled with the author’s original illustrations, the book shares ideas and techniques for developing an effective, personalized system to improve productivity and address teacher burnout. The book can also help teachers help students — particularly those in older grades — prioritize and think through their thoughts, goals and actions to be more productive learners.

Throughout the book, readers will be presented with challenges and prompts that will encourage them to write and reflect.

The book:

  • Features beautiful full-color illustrations, including sample layouts, calendar ideas and more.
  • Includes access to online content available on the author’s companion website, such as journal and planner templates, additional tutorials, printables and how-to videos.
  • Helps teachers understand and meet their own goals, and learn metacognitive strategies for teaching students how to assess their habits and goals, and reflect on them.
  • Highlights a range of analog and digital tools, and shows how teachers and students can use them.

With this book, readers will discover a fun, creative and popular approach to improve their productivity and focus, and strategies for passing these skills along to their students.

Audience: K-12 educators, preservice teachers, teacher trainers
