The Private Eye - looking closely and thinking by analogy with jeweler's loupes and inquiry method for hands-on interdisciplinary science, art, writing, math, and more

"Seeing the Light with Thomas Edison"
      5th graders, pastel, crayon, and pen, Mid Valley Elemenatary, Hood River, OR

They studied electricity and wrote up reports on Thomas Edison in their classrooms. Concurrently they "completed the circuit" with close up observations and loupe drawings
of 7watt night light bulbs with art teacher
Peggy Dills Kelter.

I’ve been using Ruef’s innovative program for years, with fabulous results.  The jeweler’s loupes literally change the way we look at the world, and her “thinking by analogy” helps students find commonality instead of divisiveness in the world.
