DeBono's 6 Hats is a research based strategy that gets students using parallel thinking to solve problems and think critically. Students will work at all Depth of Knowledge levels using this strategy in any content area. It can also be used as a classroom management tool to discuss classroom issues that arise. It promotes student engagement for every learner in the classroom. I have used this strategy many times from grades 1-5 and the students love it! I would use it by introducing the 6 hats using a classroom problem and then you can add in content to the different hats to have your students really thinking! You can do one hat as a whole class, small group or individually. Works great with reading prompts, Mathematic, Social Studies, Science, and creative thinking activities. Great way to differentiate your lesson all in one lesson!
