Description

A Guide to Thoughtful Discussion

Thinking is something we often take for granted. But thinking is not a matter of swapping opinions or simply filling in answers on the handout activity sheets like the ones you will find in these resources. It is a disciplined, reflective process. It is frustrating, challenging and often confusing, and it takes time and practice. But the results are worth it.

The discussion plans and activities in this 2-book Thinking about Picture Books series are designed to encourage students to consider philosophical concepts within certain well-known and well-loved picture books. They can be used with students of all ages, primary or secondary.

Along with the ready-to-photocopy handouts, the books contain teacher notes and a checklist of essential thinking skills. Also provided are evaluation forms that teachers can use to assess students’ critical thinking skills and that students can use to assess their own progress.

Features:

  • Helps students to develop better thinking skills and consider philosophical concepts
  • Stimulates discussion
  • Can be used for oral language
  • Develops skills of discrimination and reasoning
