SEE-I is a method of clarification and understanding. It stands for State, Elaborate, Exemplify, and Illustrate. This method provides a way to better understand and/or clearly communicate a concept or topic. SEE-I also lends itself to a natural descriptive style of writing where important concepts or topics are described in a clear, repetitive manner. This same method is sometimes referred to as the C-I paradigm. SEE-I was originated by Richard Paul and Linda Elder and further refined into the current form by Gerald Nosich.
