LA / SS
Observe: Have students identify and note details.
What do you notice first? · Find something small but interesting. · What do you notice that you didn’t expect? · What do you notice that you can’t explain? · What do you notice now that you didn’t earlier?
Reflect : Encourage students to generate and test hypotheses about the source.
Where do you think this came from? · Why do you think somebody made this? · What do you think was happening when this was made? · Who do you think was the audience for this item? · What tool was used to create this? · Why do you think this item is important? · If someone made this today, what would be different? · What can you learn from examining this?
Question: Have students ask questions to lead to more observations and reflections.
What do you wonder about...
who? · what? · when? · where? · why? · how?
