Reflection: Trust and Respect Analyzing an Art Masterpiece - Section 1: Warm Up


In this student example of, A Starry Night on the Rhone, I really liked the student's final sentence, "People painted because there were no cameras to keep the image forever, so they painted their view." It seems like such an obvious thing to write, yet no other student did so, and this is why it struck me. 

It was a wonderful opportunity to share this insightful writing with all the kids in the classroom and highlight his idea.  He was surprised and very pleased that he came up with this original thought, and although I wouldn't say it, "made his day," giving a child that feeling of success is always worth it!
