Here Now There Then: Pictures of Practice
What does the routine look like in action?

Using the routine to explore perspectives from different points in time

Jenn Aza, International School of Brussels, grade 6

The Here Now/There Then routine was used in Jen Aza's classroom to encourage and challenge students think from the perspective of from different point in time about the intsitution of marriage.

The documentation presented here illustrates some of the historical
perspective taking centered around the issue of marriage and women's rights. The students paired up to discuss what they might have thought then (a century ago) versus what they think now. Students worked in pairs and made their thinking visable on paper. The charts documented the group's thinking about this issue and were used to help the students to reflect on the differences in perspective between then and now.
