Head, Heart, Bag, Bin

Last week our sixth grade social studies teacher, Andy Hulm, presented to our faculty a catchy framework for thinking about how we teach and how students learn.  Andy had just returned from a trip to his native England following a family gathering and a visit to his former school.  One of the teachers there shared with him his teaching philosophy which is outlined in the
graphic below.

One of the ways in which this can work is by having students write on post-it notes for each category. These thoughts can then be transferred into a writing assignment.  And so while this can be utilized with a number of technology tools, it can also be used with pen and paper.
