Thinking Skills

If you have seen young people given permission to think then you have been given a vision!”
Edward de Bono ‘Thinking Course’
 
At T2TUK/Kagan-UK we are working to establish the importance of thinking through:
  • ENHANCING thinking about thinking.
  • EMBEDDING the thinking skills curriculum through the use of Cooperative Leaning Structures.
  • EXPERIENCE: delivering workshops with simple instructional strategies to engage and develop the fifteen most fundamental thinking skills.

T2TUK/Kagan-UK deliver Thinking Skills workshops that are high impact and practical. Learn to implement the Kagan 15 Thinking Skills model as part of every lesson, so every lesson becomes a thinking skills lesson! This model goes beyond Bloom’s Taxonomy! Your lessons will be a-buzz with engagement and most importantly you will be equipping your students with thinking skills they will use for a lifetime!

  • Be the facilitator for critical and creative thinking.
  • Release the potential of effective questions.
  • Learn simple structures that develop specific Thinking Skills such as Agree/Disagree Line-Ups, Listen-Sketch-Draft, Team-Pair-Solo and more!
  • Review cooperative learning basics
  • Make thinking fun for your students—and you!

We should not be asking ourselves, “how much time should we spend on thinking skills?” Instead we should be asking, ‘What thinking skills am I developing using this particular structure?’” Followed by “Which additional Thinking Skills could I strengthen using other structures?”

“Intelligent behaviour is knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do.”
