Inferring With Art: A Couple

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 19th, 2024. Join today!


Students will make inferences about this piece of art, back it up with evidence, and then adjust their inference based on new information.

You can find a full-sized image of the painting here.


  1. First, students will simply note interesting details about this painting.
  2. Next, they'll try to make an inference about what is going on in this scene.
  3. Finally, after I explain a little about the painting, they will refine or redo their inference - even writing a small story if they'd like!

The registration window closes on January 19th, 2024
