Think Big! Developing Critical Thinkers through Visual Responses to Texts


NewTopHat.jpg

Put on your thinking caps! In this differentiated presentation, prepare to read texts, activate your “mental files,” and use visual archetypes to understand and respond to a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts. Prepare to work collaboratively while exploring tools to engage visual learners, differentiate classroom instruction, and engage the gifted, talented, and creative learner.

“GIVE students a thought and they’ll learn for a DAY.
TEACH them to think and they’ll learn for a LIFETIME."

Thank you for your conference feedback. Based on your praise and suggestions, I am working to compile a list of books that can be utilized to teach systems thinking.
