Purpose: What kind of thinking does this routine encourage? This routine encourages students to make careful observations and thoughtful interpretations. It helps stimulate curiosity and sets the stage for inquiry. Application: When and Where can it be used? Use this routine when you want students to think carefully about why something looks the way it does or is the way it is. Use the routine at the beginning of a new unit to motivate stu-dent interest or try it with an object that connects to a topic during the unit of study. Launch: What are some tips for starting and using this routine? The routine works best when a student responds by using the three stems together at the same time, i.e., "I see..., I think..., I wonder...." The routine works well in a group discussion but in some cases you may want to ask students to try the routine individually on paper or in their heads before sharing out as a class.
