Science in the 17th century 
  • In the past, people studied nature by studying ancient texts
  • People now start investigate nature themselves

Slide 7 - Open question

How to approach explain question ?
  • Look at the question: what kind of explain question is it?
Explain how / why / your answer / X. Then look at what you need to explain.
  • Start looking for information: 
First your own knowledge, then your notes, then the textbook/source
  • Formulate your answer: repeat part of the question, add a signal word (because), then add the information that you found.

Slide 8 - Slide

How to look up information: textbook
  • Look at pictures/sources in the paragraph: what do they tell me about the subject?
  • Look at the titles of subheads: what is this subhead about? -> Search for the topic that your question is about
  •  Look at bold (key)words: what do they mean? What do they tell me about the subhead?
  • Look at the first two sentences and the last sentence of a indention (= alinea) to find the core information of each one. 
  • Start searching within the indentions for your answer by reading the whole indention

Slide 9 - Slide

How to look up information: a source
  • Look at the source: what kind of source is it? A picture/painting, a text, a table? A combination of text and a picture? 
  • Read the caption of the source. This tells you a bit more about the source and may help you find the answer. 
  • In case of a piece of text: start reading the source. After you read the source, take a look at the question again: what information do I need to find?
  • Read the source again, but this time more careful to look at details.
