GET IT...use a range of sources by questioning and predicting
SORT IT...analyse and sort information to answer my question: see if my thinking has changed, look for patterns by questioning inferring, summarising
USE IT…discuss what I have found out with others and make connections 

inquiring readers go through a process to gather, organise and respond to new information. We have been using  the ‘GET IT, SORT IT, USE IT’ process. After reading ‘Wonder’ by R.J.Palaccio our group felt moved to DO something but we didn’t know what! We all had lots of questions so we decided to research more about disabilities before deciding. I wanted to know more about How we can help people with disabilities to be independent.

I can research using different sources.
I can think logically, creatively, and reflectively.
I can make generalisations from patterns and connections

Did my thinking change or stay the same during the ‘GET IT’ stage?
It did change because I feel like I understand it more. We all had one question that in our small groups we had to find out. Our challenge was to find out all about disabilities.

From ‘SORTING IT’ I can make these generalisations: 
Most people with disablities want to be independent.
They a treated differently because they look different.
To them they're normal and we're different.
They a rather happy the way they are.

Ben,Liam and I would like to invent something that helps people with crutches. We are also going to observe how hinges work to make this ........ creation.
