Description
In this 'Tools for Thought' lesson developed by The Critical Thinking Consortium (www.tc2.ca) students use visual clues to explain images. They develop an understanding of the importance of making plausible inferences about an image in order to gather information about a historical or contemporary situation or place. It includes instructional suggestions for teachers (learn about the strategy, practicing the strategy, independent student activities) and resources for students (data chart, rating scale, student guide, samples and self-assessment rubric). An additional 80 Tools for Thought lessons are available to either individual members of Partner schools, boards and/or districts.

These two lessons help students to reflect on their understanding of social responsibility, social service and social justice and to delve deeper through a jigsaw activity into the differences between these three approaches. Through these lessons, students develop the necessary understanding to critically analyze actions they may take to assess whether they will have an immediate or systemic impact on the underlying issue.
