THINKING SKILLS underpin ALL LEARNING

Are you consciously teaching and enhancing thinking skills?

HERE'S HOW:

1. Prior Knowledge

Our model shows how Prior Knowledge forms the basis for all teaching and learning. What ideas and understandings and beliefs — and misconceptions — do your students have? Once you’ve figured that out (and our ready-to-use, highly-praised Prior Knowledge sets are only $3 a set), then you can move on to the next stage: THINKING SKILLS.

2. Thinking Skills

Thinking skills consist of these 3 blocks: creative thinking, critical thinking, and problem-solving (which is using the first two,  creative and critical thinking, in combination).
Our model is unique in that it also incorporates Philosophy, and Questioning, as a prerequisite approach to honing the acquisition of good thinking and inquiry skills.

3. Reflection & Transfer

The final step in building effective thinking skills and well-honed inquiry skills, is to offer your students the opportunities for REFLECTION and for TSFER of learning. What have they learned? What new questions has this work raised? Where else can they apply these new understandings and new skills?
