Homework-Week 9- O.W.I.

Still from Lagos film

In class we have been working on O.W.I. responses in our reading. This week we would like you to look at the image above and write an O.W.I response.
You need to write 2 Observations, 2 Wonderings (questions, that are linked to your observations) and 2 Inferences (linked to your observations and wonderings.)
Make sure your observations are descriptive and use emotive works to describe what you can see. Observations are factual. Only describe what you can actually see.
Please make your questions ‘deep thinking’ questions.
Please remember your inferring are like predictions that MUST include evidence from the picture. Eg- You think ..?..because you know…?…
Good luck.
