This mini unit is an engaging way for your class to explore different perspectives on critical thinking and group dynamics. Multi media is used in the introduction to guide the students towards an understanding of different ways of thinking about a "critical issue."
The 6 Hats Theory is introduced to the students and they are led through a series of activities where they need to make critical decisions. Students are offered a variety of ways to show what they know (that tap into multiple intelligences). I have offered a number of model critical issues to be used in the classroom however the issues can be tailored to your classroom and your students.
I've created self-reflection sheets for students at the middle school and senior levels.
