Thinking Skills: What should I target

Students need to be aware of their thinking and be able to communicate their thoughts to others. Students should be able to take risks when sharing their opinions and be able to listen to the opinions of others. Students need to look for humor - irony, sarcasm, puns, etc.- in their thinking. Students should strive for accuracy when communicating their ideas to others. Students should be able to evaluate and modify their own thinking.

  1. Great comments and thoughts, Melinda! I know that your seventh graders must surely benefit from your use of thinking skills in the classroom. It's obvious that you want your students to share in the learning process!
