This chart and protocol is designed to get students critically thinking and questioning historical artifacts in order to guide their own inquiry and learning. This student-centered approach allows students to engage in their own wondering and refine their research skills.
Once students have brainstormed their inquiry questions using the “I See I Think I Wonder” chart, students will begin the research process. This can be completed individually, in pairs or groups. Students will need access to a variety of sources in order to fact check and collaborate details. Use your social studies textbook as one of the sources to spice up your typical textbook reading assignment.
The provided rubric allows you to holistically grade the brainstorming and research process. Students can use the rubric for self-reflection. You will need both the “I See, I Think, I Wonder” chart and the “Research Notes” to complete the rubric.
