Teaching and learning is enhanced with these tools because they take complex concepts and simplify them through visualization strategies. They encourage deep, critical thinking to discover causes, effects, problems, and solutions.
I can see quite a few opportunities in my context (6-9 ELA); already stealing / borrowing from this ES team for a migration book club unit in grade 6, and stealing from the HS teacher for sustainable community issues in The Giver (grade 6 dystopian fiction) and Lord of the Flies (grade 7 human nature). We’ll be utilizing both of those novels for the first time in our curricula next year, and I’m really excited to design them through some different lenses.
