Reflection: Learning Communities Graphing: Plotting Data - Section 1: Opener


I began this lesson by using an activity called See, Think, Wonder.  This a great activity to incorporate into an subject area.  Basically what it entails is showing an image to students and asking them what they see, think, and wonder about the image. 

I had never heard of this concept until I was at a professional development session and my colleagues and I were sharing strategies.  I was very intrigued by this concept and started using it my classroom right away. 

It is important to have conversations around best practices with other educators in your field because everyone has something to bring to the table.  There are so many great ideas out there floating around and some times all you have to do is strike up a conversation with a colleague.
