Inferring With Art: A Man

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through October 1st, 2021. Join today!


Students will make several inferences based on the details in this painting.

Download a large version of the painting here. It's important not to reveal the title though!


  1. First, we just notice details in the painting.
  2. Then, students will make three inferences - one must be about what this man's job is.
  3. Finally, I reveal the painting's title and challenge students to make the ultimate inference: write the poem that this man is writing!

The registration window closes on October 1st, 2021
