Best Practices - The Document Protocol

This simple little tool is designed to slow students thinking and judgment down when viewing images. It has been the conduit for my teaching this year and I credit it for the new levels of independence and analysis that I've seen from my current students compared to those in years past

That said, it's nothing new; we've all seen similar machinations of it somewhere before. I like this one because of the level of access it provides. Compared to other image analysis protocols I've seen, this one is composed of very simple steps. Any student regardless of skill can complete any of the simple tasks. Indeed, I find that most often those with the lowest skills notice those wonderful little details that the rest miss.
