Website Spotlight: What’s Going On In This Picture?

What’s going on in this picture? Look closely at the image above or view it in a larger size, then tell us what you see by posting a comment. On Tuesday, we will reveal more about the image and its origins at the bottom of this post.

From the New York Times Learning Network:

1. After looking closely at the image above (or at the full-size image), think about these three questions:

  • What’s going on in this picture?
  • What do you see that makes you say that?
  • What more can you find?

2. Next, join the conversation by posting a comment. (Please remember not to post your last name.)

3. After you have posted, try reading back to see what others have said, then respond to someone else by posting another comment. Use the “@” symbol to address that student directly.

Each Monday, NYT’s collaborators, Visual Thinking Strategies, will facilitate a discussion from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Eastern time by paraphrasing comments and linking to responses to help students’ understanding go deeper. You might use their responses as models for your own.

4. On Tuesday, the NYT will reveal more information at the bottom of this post about the photo. How does reading the caption and learning its “back story” help you to see the image differently?
