One of the reason I find blogging useful is it a simple way to share the wealth of information found online and to promote time to consider and reflect, to become more intentional in our thinking and doing. So find a critical friend, a mentor or a colleague and have a conversation.
How would you see yourself using these five questions?
1. What do you think?
2. Why do you think that?
3. How do you know this?
4. Can you tell me more?
5. What questions do you still have?
I imagine if these 5 simple questions become an intentional aspect of our thinking and interactions with children, our colleagues, our mentors and our mentees, we will become more reflective and intentional in understanding why are doing what we do! It helps create deeper thinking and allows for critical reflection.
One strategy I have seen used and have seen work is posting questions throughout the environment to reinforce the intentionality of our thinking. What are your thoughts?
