The Private Eye is a simple, brilliant teaching tool to train students to look closely at objects, think about analogies and write descriptively.

This brief YouTube video contains snapshots of student work and teacher testimonials of its effectiveness.

See examples of student work resulting from training and use of The Private Eye teaching.  The image below, created by a middle school student, comes from this gallery.
