Thinking Skills Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Thinking Skills Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Product DescriptionToday’s students are the problem-solvers of the future. If they are taught factual knowledge only, they tend to respond with conventionally correct answers rather than exploring creative solutions. All students can learn to think critically and creatively.Students need to be able to judge, analyse and think critically in order to participate fully in a democratic and technological society. This can be achieved if the teacher recognises the value of thinking skills and provides opportunities for the thinking processes to be modelled and developed.This ‘Think Outside of the Box’ series provides teachers with straightforward ideas and activities to help students develop these skills.In this pack you will find 80 quick start task cards – 4 cards per page. I have provided 3 options for printing.These ‘quick starts’ are ideal warm-up activities for the beginning of a lesson. They should be used flexibly and can be used in any order at any time. As these task cards are intended for repeated use, I would suggest laminating them for durability.When to use: (10-15 minutes group/class)• at the beginning of a lesson• during circle timeCONTENT• Cover; Teacher Notes• Brainstorm Task Cards x 8• How Could You?
