PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint presentation is the second in a series used to introduce students to the Six Thinking Hats method of metacognition. The focus of "...Part Two, What are the Possibilities?" is the Yellow Hat and the Black Hat. These Hats are used to encourage students to consider both positive and negative possibilities while problem- solving.

Intentional teaching of this type of flexibility when thinking is helpful in many ways in the classroom, both academically and socially. The use of the Hats provides an easily comprehended and applied common language that students and teachers can use to develop interpersonal relationships in groups and apply to community problems or projects. Students can also apply the Six Thinking Hats method to their own intra-personal relationship (self-talk) to help develop, manage, and maintain constructive momentum, endurance, and tenacity.

I've seen a lot of success with this method in my classroom. Students can relate to the colors easily and are able to quickly implement both the language and the logic of the strategy. With time and practice, many students will begin to self-regulate their emotions which makes it easier to develop more strategic thinking skills.

I hope you and your students benefit from this method! Please let me know your thoughts!
