Tactical Teaching Thinking

Do you want easy-to-use activities to improve critical thinking, creative thinking and metacognition?

 


 

Tactical Teaching Thinking

Thinking is so central to everyday life that it is unusual to consider it in a fragmented way. Yet, the abstract, interwoven nature of thinking is something that can deter effective teaching in any subject area. This series of three workshops will help teachers maximise the power of students' creative, critical and metacognitive thinking to help you teach your content. Teachers improve professional decision-making about what to teach, to whom and how.

Contact us to ask about prices in your area.

Take a Teacher Course and learn how to use the resource in your classroom, or better yet, take a Facilitator Course and learn to deliver the workshops to other teachers.

 


 

Workshop 1: Why is it So? Stimulating Critical Thinking

The ability to evaluate information and opinions in a systematic, purposeful, efficient manner requires critical thinking. This workshop explores what it means to think critically: what processes are applied and what strategies can be employed to enable students to think critically. Learn to stimulate critical thinking and help students analyse and evaluate information and opinions in a systematic, purposeful and efficient manner.

Why is it So? Stimulating Critical Thinking workbook contains over a dozen innovative short burst activities for exploring learning area subject matter.

 


 

Workshop 2: Looking Outside the Box: Encouraging Creative Thinking

Creative thinkers are able to view and understand the world in new and different ways. Lateral thinking leads to improved problem solving skills. In this workshop participants explore ways of teaching students to think creatively to achieve improved learning outcomes.

Looking Outside the Box: Encouraging Creative Thinking workbook contains over a dozen innovative short burst activities for exploring learning area subject matter.

 


 

Workshop 3: Mirror to the Mind: Developing Metacognition

Have you ever thought about how you think and learn? Teaching students about the metacognitive process enables them to develop strategies to understand and enhance their own thinking and learning skills. Students who understand how they think and learn can propel themselves to enhanced learning within your subject area. Learn to teach students about the metacognitive process and improve their own learning. Learn what metacognition is, why is it important and the four most common characteristics of a metacognitive learner.

Mirror to the Mind: Developing Metacognition workbook contains over a dozen innovative short burst activities for exploring learning area subject matter.

 


 

The Tactical Teaching suite:

Tactical Teaching is based on the belief that teachers need to make decisions about what to teach (the learning area), to whom (which students), and how (the most effective way) to teach. Its power comes from helping students construct their understandings through developing effective processes and strategies to self-manage their learning.

 

Tactical Teaching training is a whole school approach to improved literacy. It is easy to use and teachers learn how to help students hone literacy skills while invigorating classes with student-focused tasks. Participants try out at least a dozen practical activities to take straight back to the classroom.

 

Tactical Teaching training is used in thousands of classrooms worldwide with more than 600 teachers trained as Facilitators of Tactical Teaching.

 

Recommended for:

  • Crafted for middle school and secondary teachers
  • Effectively supports teachers of late primary students and adult learners to improve literacy 

Tactical Teaching training is used in thousands of classrooms worldwide with more than 600 teachers trained as Facilitators of Tactical Teaching.
