Sample post: Assignment 2

Note: This is an example of what your Assignment 2 post might look like.

I am more interested in you practicing your public domain search skills than working on an elaborate “activity.” I also want you to learn how to create a gallery in WordPress.

Visual Thinking Strategies Activity

My activity uses Visual Thinking Strategies.  In my public domain search I found three images all based on the idea of family. I would lead students in a “close reading” of the images in a whole class setting. My goal: to help students learn to use what they already know to figure out what they don’t.

Guiding questions:

  1. What’s going on in this picture?
  2. What do you see that makes you say that?
  3. What more can we find?
