PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

TLAD, or Thinking Like a Disciplinarian is based on the work of Dr. Sandra Kaplan and her quest to take students deeper into content and thinking skills by adopting multiple perspectives utilized by real world professionals. TLAD is based on the idea of introducing students to the recourses, tools, thinking skills, methods professionals in the field utilize daily. While we want to practice integrating TLAD into our everyday teaching, we must first expose our students to what each Discipline is.

This mini project asks students to problem solve by using the skills, tools, and talents that mark various disciplines. Students are confronted with the challenge of being marooned on an island. through 6 tasks students plan out a team of professionals that will best aid their survival. Students then make a poster that justifies their team and method of survival.

Use this product along with the list of 36 disciplines to enhance reading skills. Students may also research their chosen discipline online.
Students complete the first task on their own.
They share their answers with their group and collaborate on their final choices.

I normally have my class make a poster of their island
Each person draws themselves on the poster and attaches their final index card explaining their discipline and job on the island.

This is great way to start the year and get kids talking and working together.
