Multiple reviews have called for authentic, course-based approaches to teaching students drawing methods they can apply for model-based reasoning. We applied a think-aloud protocol for the collection of qualitative data on the use of a drawing-to-learn method, sketching, during a one-semester college biology course. Students adopted sketching, and nearly all used sketches as mental images, while many also applied the sketches as mental models used for model-based reasoning. The approach to teaching drawing used in this study may be an effective way to develop these skills in students.
