Thinking Routine – CSI:

The students have been exploring powerful words to inquire into:

  • how images can affect our feelings
  • the power of words and how we use them
  • how we can respond to words and images

They used a ‘Thinking Routine ‘CSI‘ to help them communicate their ideas and thinking.

C – Colour –we chose a colour that best represents or captures the essence of the key word.

S – Symbol – we chose a symbol that best represents or captures the essence of the key word.

I – Image – we chose an image that best represents or captures the essence of the key word.

The students shared their colour, symbol and image with each other justifying and explaining reasons for their choices.

We wondered how these powerful words are connected to us. The following questions helped us consider our choices, and action we might want to take as a result of our learning…

• Why did we choose these words?
• Why do they matter to us?
• How do these words make us feel?
• What do we want people to know about these words?
• What can we do with these words?
• What action do we want to take?

We look forward to student ACTION!
