Reflection: Checks for Understanding Formulating Questions About an Image - Section 3: Students Examine Frida Kahlo's Identity


Most students were able to clearly articulate the negative light in which Kahlo painted the United States. As a group, they were also able to state that the dress in the center is an expression of her identity. Several were able to also perceive that she may have felt out of place and very much different from anyone in the city she was in. 

The questions they formulated seem to have helped them explore Khalo's identity. This student, for example, is asking good questions about the dress in the painting, which points to the value of the Question Formulation Technique.
