GRADE 8: Moving from SEEing to THINKing

Moving From SEEing (analysing) to THINKing (interpreting)


Today students used a images to understand the difference between seeing something and thinking about it.  We recognized that we need to look closely at something several times before we begin to understand it.

This the more complicated the text the more purposefully we must examine it before we truly understand the author's intended message.

Grade 8's used an image from the Art Gallery of Hamilton to practice SEEing and THINKing.  Click the link to see the image, "Bruegel-Bosch Bus" by Kim Adams.

Students used their observations to think about what the author's message might be.  See our class ideas below:
