LEAP- What makes you say that?

LEAP- What makes you say that?

In the previous cycle, the students were introduced to a visible thinking routine “What makes you say that?”

Students were given a task to observe a picture for couple of minutes after which their responses were recorded under the ‘what is going on?’ column along with an evidence of their observation. These evidential statements were recorded under the ‘What makes you say that?’ column.

Purpose: What kind of thinking did this routine encourage?
This routine helped students describe what they saw or knew and asked them to build explanations. It promoted evidential reasoning (evidence-based reasoning) and it encouraged students to understand alternatives and multiple perspectives.

Application: When and where can I use it?

The routine can be adapted for use with almost any subject and may also be useful for gathering information on students’ general concepts when introducing a new topic by asking questions like ‘What do you see?’ or ‘What do you know?’

Because the basic questions in this routine are flexible, it is useful when looking at objects such as works of art or historical artefacts, but it can also be used to explore a poem, make scientific observations and hypothesis, or investigate more conceptual ideas.

It was an insightful session for the students as they got acquainted to their as well as others’ thinking.
