I’ve written quite a bit about the Picture Word Inductive Model (PWIM) as a wildly effective instructional strategy. You can see some of what I’ve written about it at The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons and in my book on teaching English Language Learners. I’ll also be writing even more about it in my upcoming book on ELL’s.
The PWIM is most well-known for being used in teaching English, but it can also be used very effectively in the content areas. I wanted to share an absolutely phenomenal Science lesson and a fairly decent Social Studies one.
If anyone has suggestions of other good content lessons using the PWIM, please let me know.
