Student Council Speeches and Politics

I love student council. I’ve served on student councils since sixth grade. Contrary to what television says, student council races are rarely competitive. In fact, I’ve only been in one race where there was actually an opponent, and even then it was pretty clear who was going to win. My sophomore year in high school, three people ran for three spots each year so there wasn’t even voting. Still, we had to give speeches.

Stop, Look, and Think: The Visual Thinking Strategies Method

Through the use of open-ended discussion questions and a group problem-solving model, the Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) method helps students develop visual literacy, as well as their problem solving, deep thinking, and listening skills. Using primary sources from JWA's collection, guest teacher Tamar Rosenfeld-Cohen models how to use the VTS method effectively, and ways in which to adapt and extend it for classroom use.
