Here is a great idea to provide differentiation in homework. The Heat-ometer provides four levels, from mild (not shown in the image above) to medium (also not shown) to hot and extra hot. each level is more complex than the previous level, and 3 options are provided for each level.

The designer of this image also provides links to the original design, which is located at Take Away Homework.

What do we mean by share your evidence? It is a great question. What happens if something is said that does not fit with our expectations and pre-suppositions?

Sans questions pas de raisonnement. 

D'ailleurs, qu'est ce que la réflexion si ce n'est l'enchaînement de questions?

Et l'intelligence ne serait elle pas simplement l'enchaînement de bonne questions?

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Susan Walker-Meere's curator insight, November 9, 2014 12:49 PM

I would add: Trans-disciplinary thinking; systems thinking for sustainability. Most people can not see the forest through the trees so miss the larger connections of the impacts that action, goods & services have on both environmental systems and human systems.

Teaching students digital citizenship is not as easy as one might think.Tweens and teens often make decisions when posting online before they consider the consequences. Dr. Mike Ribble "coined the nine elements of digital citizenship" and many use it as a base to help teach these skills. The poster (shown above) may be printed out and six additional resources are provided in this post. 

Nancy Jones's curator insight, September 11, 2014 1:59 PM

This has not only an interesting graphic, but a number of links to additional resources for this very important topic.

This is a great tool for teachers. A small, printable reminder for students of their digital citizenship responsibilities.
