Connecting Concepts: Thinking Activities for Students

Connecting Concepts: Thinking Activities for Students is a valuable classroom resource designed to help teachers turn their classroom into a community of inquiry through exploring concepts such as violence, the mind, culture, knowledge and justice.

Connecting Concepts includes discussion ideas and exercises suitable for whole class, group and individual activities using a wide range of learning styles.

Clear guidelines, examples and sample questions provide a step-by-step introduction to conceptual analysis in the classroom. Blackline masters introduce concept games to students.

Concept games can be used in any subject area and are designed to promote a better understanding of the essential concepts being taught. Easy to use, these games quickly highlight areas for consideration and clarification and allow students to think critically about and develop their own understanding of concepts.

Connecting Concepts is ideal for use with students 12 years of age and above. It is a particularly relevant resource for use in English, social education, science, religious education and any subject that teaches thinking skills and values education.
