Learning how to inSPECt!
Today in class I introduced the inSPECt process. This stands for "social, political, economic, and cultural" themes "in (the) text." We inSPECt everything that we read in order to get more out of it. Below you can see what we discussed in class as well as one of the handouts that was given to each student. This work comes from Text Inspection on the Core, by Anthony Fitzpatrick. I have personalized his ideas for my classroom and was actually featured in his book! I believe that this process well let us dig deeper into history and really get a sense of what is going on. Look for students to be able to use these words and explain what they are learning in terms of these four themes. We will take the next step with this work tomorrow!.
