Opening Routine: Picture This

As we return to school this year, Pear Deck has partnered with Facing History and Ourselves to help build community and trust within classrooms, both physical and virtual. With these quick, interactive routines—designed to take five to ten minutes each—educators can foster a sense of belonging and prioritize social-emotional learning every day.

This routine encourages closely viewing, making inferences about, and analyzing an intriguing image. After students have experienced this routine a few times, ask them to send you ideas for images. You can also invite them to co-facilitate the routine with a peer or facilitate it on their own if they are comfortable doing so.
