TYWLS Bronx Social Studies teacher Michelle Nguyen used OPTIQ to get her students to examine and make inferences about tenement housing photographs. Michelle wanted her students to share their own thinking in pairs or trios to decide if tenement housing should be considered a social problem.

Check out Michelle's OPTIQ-adapted lesson slides that include student samples. You can also watch her class use OPTIQ in the video below with an option for students who were absent on the day of the lesson.
