Diagramming Illustrated

My English Grammar students have been creating visual responses to Florey’s Sister Bernadette’s Barking Dog using the 21 formats of handmade thinking.    I also put them in groups of three today and asked them to invent their own system for visually representing sentences, and then to use that system to portray the sentence “My professor came into class with a crazy idea.

Here below are six examples from students’ responses to Florey’s Chapter 1 “Enter the Dog,” and three of the invented systems students put on large post-it paper on the classroom walls.
