In Mrs. Ashby’s Write Like a Scientist class, students took their new skills of observation and questioning out into a world “they have never seen before.” Looking at the world from a new point of view left the students in awe of the world they have never really noticed before.
Some student comments: “I have never looked so closely at the things I see everyday before. Who knew?”
“The observation process we learned has changed the way I think. I feel like a philosopher and I like it.”
“The new words force us to be more exact in our descriptions!”
