Download this 32-Slide PowerPoint and thinking skills resources packed full of ideas for an INSET about thinking skills. The PowerPoint explains how by encouraging ‘higher order thinking’ learners can become more challenged and engaged, their experiences will be more enriched and their levels of achievement raised. It gives prompts for discussion and suggests ‘why?’ ‘how’ ‘what if’ or unusual questions teachers could ask. Find out more about Bloom’s Taxonomy….a useful structure for learning that can be used to develop higher order thinking skills. The PowerPoint explains how the series of action verbs is linked to thought processes (knowledge, attitude & skills, knowledge and comprehension, application analysis, synthesis, evaluation). Teachers can use these ACTION verbs to plan activities for children that will extend their thinking skills. Included is an activity, based on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, teachers can carry out to illustrate how useful Bloom’s Taxonomy is. This is a great resource for INSET or for using at a parents’ workshop.
