There are many ways to improve the great thinking instead of increase the critical thinking. For this time i just want to share about Advance Organizer : KWHL Techniques , and Thinking Templates or Graphics Organiser.
1. Advance Organizer : KWHL Techniques
what is KWHL stands for ?
The table above can be used for making a good planner in learning. It is called the Advance organizer. Advance organizer helps students to connect the new ideas of what they may learn with the ready knowledge they have before, therefore makes the learning more effective.
2. Thinking Template or Graphics Organiser
Graphic organisers are highly effective thinking tools that illustrate the organisation or structure of and relationships between concepts. Graphic organisers provide opportunities to track thinking and clarify both the content and the thinking processes used when creating, problem-solving or evaluating.
Graphic organisers are visual frameworks that help students to:
- structure and make visible their thinking processes
- organise their information, ideas and research
- see both the whole and the parts of a problem or issue
- plan activities and investigations
- review and reflect on progress, understanding and skills
- communicate effectively using images
- extend their thinking by encouraging in-depth thought on topics and/or issues.
