PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It’s no secret in my classroom that I looooove a good analogy. I notice them, collect them, use them, try them on, discuss them, play with them, etc. I’d imagine that it takes the first few months of being in my class to get used to the liberal sprinkling of analogies.

Today, I’d like to talk about one of my favorites: Jet ski or SCUBA Dive.

In helping my learners engage at a deeper level, I use the imagery of jet skiing across the surface of the ocean, versus SCUBA diving in the ocean. We discuss which person is getting to know more about the ocean – the diver, of course. We discuss the knowledge of the ocean gained by the skier vs the diver.

Finally, I ask my students to replace the visual of the ocean with the visual of the world of information. Then we talk about the difference between “skiing” through information and “diving” into information – building an image of the habits of strong research.

This has been a useful analogy in our classroom – maybe it can be in yours, too!
