GC119 – Visual Imagery – Prior Knowledge Brain Scan (Reading Journal)

GC119-S3 – Prior Knowledge Brain Scan – The brain spontaneously creates Mind Maps when focusing on any object or topic with an array of curiosity. As directed, individually, with a partner, in a small group and/or class, Alexa or Instructor will guide students to brainstorm their prior knowledge on today’s lesson topic using a Mind Map graphic. Though links may be unrelated, students will be directed to use more than just keywords, characteristics, examples, non-examples, phrases, ideas, tasks, etc. The captured thoughts may also be portrayed as images pictures, symbols, drawings or icons.

GC118 – Visual Imagery – Visual Phenomenon (Journal Entry)

GC118-S3 – Visual Phenomenon – Our brain has a natural desire to make sense of the world. Every day, we can observe a real-word phenomenon that generates curiosity. This curiosity makes the brain create its own question, then investigate, explore and discover its own knowledge. Why or how do things work or happen as they do? In a two-step process, when given the lesson topic or a lesson-related object, Alexa will lead students, as directed, individually, with a partner or small group, to generate what real-life curiosity questions that come to mind? Student will be prepared to share their questions.
