Props to Bruce Schauble for this post on elegance. I also appreciated the Universal Intellectual Standards he referenced.
This year my school is focusing on (among other things) higher order thinking skills, so the above materials are timely and appropriate.
Thanks, too, for these Reading Response Moves. For those of you who haven't checked it out, Bruce's blog, Throughlines, is a must read.
I snapped the above photo in a state forest in Western Massachusetts with a Canon PowerShot SD750 this October.
