Stop Look Listen
Connections and Extension

The Stop Look Listen routine can be done in small groups, in pairs, and even solo. It can also be combined with other routines. Use it with True for Who routine to help think of perspectives related to the claim and then brainstorm sources from these perspectives. Use it with the Claim-Support-Question routine to help students defien and clarufy a claim.

A natural follow-up to the activity is to have students investigate the sources and come up with stances. Another follow-up activity is to ask students to a write short essay explaining their position on the truth claim. Yet another follow-up activity is to have students take on the opposite stance to what they think is the truth.
