This workshop will focus on how middle and high school students can be taught explicitly to be kind, helpful, and specific when reviewing each others’ work through the Six Thinking Hats critique system, adapted based on Edward de Bono’s work. Participants will step into the role of the student to experience a variety of the ways these skills are developed an assessed within the classroom. These strategies help students look critically at the work of others and themselves, assessing it for both content (utilizing classroom terminology to address learning targets) and construction (craftsmanship and professional execution).
Critique also helps students to be responsive to the emotional needs of their peers, and sensitive to others’ criticism in productive ways. Participants will leave with a solid grasp of the language used to guide critique in the classroom, as well as a series of activities that incorporate critique in meaningful ways.
The workshop will be led by STEM Foundation teachers at DRSS.
