Now Then Later
Connections and Extension


Students’ ideas about actions are captured in the group brainstorm initially, and thus made visible to the class for discussion and examination. In the follow-up discussions and/or writing, students’ show their reasoning about how an action repairs or prevents unfairness. Their reasoning provides insights into how students are thinking about issues of fairness and the extent to which they are able to take into account the perspectives of others. Students can also use the Here Now/There Then routine to consider how attitudes and perceptions about the topic have shifted over time. Consider using the CIrcle of Viewpoints routine to extend the conversation and build new ideas for fairness actions.
