Things we discovered today:
– stories are how we share our lives
– history is made up of stories
– facts tell stories
– if you can ask a question, you can tell a story
– facts without imagination paint only half a picture
Today, we looked at images from “How the Other Half Lives” and found the stories within. Fresh from a field trip to the Tenement Museum & well-grounded in an interdisciplinary immigration study, they leapt in. Every day, my students amaze & delight me. Today was no different. Truly, I’m spoiled, & pretty smug about it.
