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