Think Pack - Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities
Training Activities for Teachers
These activities are for you to use ideally with a whole-school staff or a group of colleagues. It is a vital part of the process to discuss and share ideas about the activities and the cards. This will help you to understand how to use the cards.
Before you use Thinking Cards, you need to know how they support your learners to acquire and develop Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities.
These activities are designed to make you think. They place you in unfamiliar situations, replicating what learners face on a regular basis, and show you how Thinking Cards can scaffold thinking and provide guidance if learners become stuck.
Each activity will take about 45 minutes, depending on how much discussion follows. We have highlighted suggestions for discussion, where appropriate.
