Schematic symbols should ideally reflect the function of the represented device. This article is a decent starting point: ... rstandable

There are probably other, and better, tutorials on the subject.

In addition to using meaningful symbols, the flow of a schematic matters. In general:
1. Inputs on the left
2. Outputs on the right
3. Power pins on the top of the symbol
4. Ground/common pins on the bottom of the symbol
