Look At Your Fish
In the essay, “Look at Your Fish,” Samuel Hubbard Scudder discusses what he learned through looking closely at things.
- You haven’t spent your time looking at fish, but rather political ads.
- Take a minute to do as Hubbard Scudder has and reflect on what you have learned from your writing process and from the process of analysis.
Consider the following questions:
- How do you see political advertisements differently now?
- What was your “haemulon”? How did you see more in the ad the more you looked at it? What are some things you discovered or understood only after looking a long time?
- Have you started looking at other things more analytically?
- Schudder had to draw his fish over and over; we had to write and revise an essay. Did writing the essay help you see and understand the ad better?
- Do you feel like you understand better why analysis and synthesis are important and useful thinking skills?
