Every Monday, The Learning Network of the New York Times posts a picture and asks What’s Going On In This Picture? (WGOITP?) In addition to selecting a picture and posing three questions for students to ponder, students are invited to comment. On Friday the caption for the photo is revealed, along with more information. Does knowing more change the students’ understanding of the image?
Earlier this year, the article 10 Intriguing Photographs to Teach Close Reading and Visual Thinking Skills presented ten tried and true images, and offered ideas from teachers and students on using these photographs.
