Developing Higher Order Cognition in a Subject-Focused Class

Session 1—Thinking skills

Participants will experience teaching approaches that develop students’ cognitive abilities, integrating critical thinking into the classroom. Participants will also explore ways to equip students to evaluate the reliability and credibility of sources of knowledge as independent learners outside the classroom.

Session 2—Productive Questions

This session focuses on two classroom techniques that develop students’ abilities to analyse, evaluate and create: Essential Questions and Socratic Seminars. Participants will become familiar with both techniques and will put them into practice in a context relevant to their own teaching.
