Blog challenge: compare and contrast photo

 

Been awhile since I’ve seen any blog challenges…

Anne Hodgson posted a quick pic post yesterday and its humor got the ball rolling on a fun idea.  We sent a few tweets back and forth and decided to challenge you to choose two photos to “compare and contrast” something similar but different.

Can’t wait to see how creative the PLN is on this one.

I took a few minutes and looked backed over my photos and fell on two I felt like sharing. Here’s my great great grandfather and below is me on my 53 vespa with which I sputtered all around LA in 2005.

 

 

 

1) What is similar about their outfits ?

2) If you asked them “what are you about to do”, what would they answer ?

 

Feel like sharing a couple o’ pics ?  Go on… blog it ;-)

    You always come up with fu. Challenges. these ones actually have a great pedagogical point too (intendd I’m sure!) as compare and contrast is exactly what you need to do in some of the Cambridge exams, including FCE, which I’m teaching at the moment. Will have to think about my pics :) Most of them are already on#eltpics of course ;)

    Nice idea – I’ll see what I can come up with.

    And look out for another blog challenge coming soon (hopefully tomorrow ;) )

    You got me inspired Brad!!

    Great :) You guys look a little similar, don’t you? Did you know him at all? And you were headed… um… you have a band tied around your right arm… was it a day of commemoration?

  • http://blog.edulang.com Brad Patterson

    cheers Sandy.  

    Anne was the first with the “compare and contrast” direction, and I’m sure it’s from the echos of  pedagogical practice !  Look forward to seeing what you pull together ;-)

    Cool… and of course you know where “in-spire” comes from… one of my favs:  

    http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?search=inspire  (where spirare is “breathe” in latin)

  • http://blog.edulang.com Brad Patterson

    there probably is a bit of a resemblance, though it’s always hard to be subjective about ourselves, isn’t it ?  Haha… the band around my arm was an iPod mini… um… it had 4gb… yea… awhile back.  I was actually headed to work.  Another guess ?  ;-)

    For compare and contrast – I like the two attached below – if you check their Flickr links http://www.flickr.com/photos/phil_b/5428928447/in/set-72157624964396156 & http://www.flickr.com/photos/phil_b/5849998480/in/set-72157624964396156 you’ll notice that they’re both taken at the same time of day (on the way to work….)

    Fantastic challenge, Brad! I love the photos you chose. It was a tough exercise too. I had a few pairs and I was trying to think about which ones would give learners more things to talk about! 
    Thanks for keeping the wheels turning. Here is my post. A big thanks to Anne for suggesting that we extend this challenge to the learners on MyEC. I look forward to their photos too. http://my.englishclub.com/profiles/blogs/compare-and-contrast

  • Fionalj Price

    Excellent idea Brad and what cool photos. I love it as not only is it a fun challenge but it’s practical too. You can personalise the task (I mean for FCE or CAE exam practice) and make it so much more meaningful and real. Now, I just need to find some photos …

    [...] Brad’s Blog Challlenge and Larry’s blog about the Best Way to Use Photos in the classroom provided many useful techniques I could incorporate into my future lessons.Using pictures to enhance the students’ higher level thinking is a great idea to get the students engaged and interested in the subject matter. I liked the idea behind using a photo to compare and contrast, and try to figure out the details behind the objects or people in the picture. On Larry’s blog, he commented how utilizing pictures in the classroom corresponds to Bloom’s Taxonomy Level of Thinking. He provided an interactive link that shows the levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. When you click on each level, a picture pops up along with several question cues that appropriately match each level of Bloom’s. I could certainly use these strategies in my classroom when I am introducing a unit. I could present pictures of important aspects of the unit and ask students’ open-ended questions about what they think the pictures represent and what they mean. These ideas could ideally promote students’ interests in the current lesson being presented. [...]

    [...] Brad’s Blog Challenge on comparing and contrasting photos was very interesting. I liked to see what teachers came up with when they were deciding what photos to pick to compare and contrast. Brad’s photo challenge seems to attract many teachers, including me, a future educator. I enjoyed seeing the comments that people wrote on others photos.  They answered the questions and expressed what they liked about the photos, which is great! One photo challenge that I really liked was one by Marie O’Sullivan. She actually did two photo challenges. One was on how two different streets were connected and the second was on how a mood can change in a picture. I think that you can use pictures like these in a classroom to talk about how facial expressions can change depending on what mood you are in. For kindergarten, feelings and expressions are a good topic to discuss. You can also use these photos to get students thinking about comparing and contrasting things. Another way you can use these pictures is for students to write a story about the two different pictures. There are so many ways that this challenge can help in a classroom. I took on this challenge and this is what I came up with: [...]
