I would like to thank Joonna Trapp and Brad Peters, co-editors of JAEPL, for inviting me to submit an article for this anniversary issue on the topic of visual thinking, and especially for allowing Myra and me to create and present the article in a comic format.

You’ll see “Musgrove & Musgrove / Drawing is Learning” at the top margin of the right side facing pages.  I can’t tell you how wonderful that makes me feel.

I’d also like to thank Scott McCloud for inspiring me to teach comics and offering all of us new ways to conceptualize and compose non-fiction visually.

I’d also like to thank Sunni Brown, Mike Rohde, Dan Roam, and Brandy Agerbeck who have helped me understand the power of visual thinking, teaching, and learning.

The Notes pages is one of my favorite pages.  Rather than using numbers to signal footnotes, we used actual notes.
