Learning Higher Level Thinking Skills   May 26,2020
Whenever you are able, give your student the opportunity to develop higher level thinking skills.

*    Provide opportunities for problem solving:  “your model volcano is falling over.  Can you think of a way to fix it?”
*    Provide opportunities for decision making:  Which would you like to do first, eat your apple or your sandwich?”
*    Provide opportunities for making judgements:  “Do you think Mary should be allowed to go on the field trip even if she forgot her permission slip?”
*    Provide opportunities for critical thinking:  Ask questions that require more than a yes or no answer:  “Why do you think live bugs are better than Lizard Chow?”
