The Private Eye
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|A hands-on, investigative teaching approach that attempts to stimulate the wonder of looking closely at the world, thinking by analogy, changing scale, and theorizing. It uses everyday objects, a jeweler's loupe, and a series of simple questions, which become the foundation for hypothesizing, theorizing, and answering the question: "Why is it like that?" Program description, students' projects, "field reports," sample idea sheets and the like are all available online. Designed to develop the "interdisciplinary mind."|
