About This Activity
This routine encourages close viewing, inferencing, and analyzing as students engage with an intriguing image. After students have experienced this routine a few times, ask them to send you ideas for images. You can also invite them to co-facilitate the routine with a peer or facilitate it on their own if they are comfortable doing so.
Sources for intriguing images include the New York Times weekly feature What’s Going On in This Picture?, museum collections (consider local, national, and global museums), and photographs from the Sierra Club.
