Slide 3 - Mind map

The THINK step encourages students to share their thoughts about the work. All thoughts are welcome, but you can guide the step by asking questions such as: what is happening in the picture? What could it mean? Why do you say that?

Slide 4 - Mind map

The "Me" step asks pupils to make personal connections, so it's a time when a safe and trusting atmosphere is particularly important. 

Perhaps you could share your own personal response first. If you are working with a large group, it may be helpful to do this step in pairs or trios.
How does this photo relate to what you see or hear from the world around you?

Slide 5 - Mind map

The "We" step invites pupils to look for connections outside themselves. 
One way to help them do this is to ask them to think about how the personal connections they identified in the "Me" step might relate to larger themes. 

This step can be challenging for students. As with the "Me" step, it can be helpful for you, the facilitator, to model a response by sharing your own reflections.
