Use: Formative Assessment of Renaissance era art.

Higher Order Thinking: In World History we study the Renaissance and the great art it produced. Students learn how art is often an expression of what society values. After studying how the style and subject of Renaissance art changed throughout the decades, students should be able to identify aspects of this painting (religious in nature, straight lines, etc.) that would let them know that it is an earlier piece.

Higher Order Thinking: Every year I have my government students create a photo collage that demonstrates their understanding of a particular constitutional amendment. I could use befunky or a similar tool to allow students to find free images to create their collages. They aren't allowed to use any words (other than the title) on this assignment, so it requires students to examine real world application of a constitutional principle.

Higher Order Thinking: I'm asking students to examine two documents and make inferences about time and point of view based upon the clues they find.  Each of these historical thinking skills are objectives in AP US History.

Higher Order Thinking: This is a portrait of Native American princess Pocahontas after she married an Englishman and converted to Christianity. I've cropped out the description, so students will have to use the very few clues they have to come to a conclusion.
