Professional Wing Dialogue
You have been selected to be your group's care bear!
Your role is to:
1. Encourage your group members to contribute to the discussion.
2. Keep track of time and move on to the next question once the time allocated is up!
Activity 1: Sharing, discussion and synthesis or articles/videos
We suggest spending 30 min for Q1 & Q2 and 10 min for Q3
Question 1: In relation to your subject/area of work, what key concepts or ideas from the article/video will aid in:
(a) developing 21CC without losing the disciplinary focus of the lesson?
(b) making students’ learning and thinking visible?
(c) facilitating more student voices in the classroom?
Question 2: What ideas, positions or assumptions do you want to challenge within the article/video?
Question 3: In your branch, what changes are necessary to sharpen your officers’ 21CC development skills?
Activity 2: Unpacking "Thinking Skills and Thinking Dispositions"
Question 1: (10 min)
What connections did you make between Table 1, the CIT S&B, and your respective areas of work (e.g. design of subject syllabus / teacher training)
Question 2: (10 min)
When planning and designing the syllabus/lessons, the integration of 21CC should be intentional, meaningful and facilitate the transfer of learning. How might Table 1 and the CIT S&B help you to do so?
Question 3: (10 min)
21CC could be assessed through the provision of qualitative feedback that is developmental and formative in nature. How might you use Table 1 and the CIT S&B to assess CIT?
Question 4: (10 min)
What challenges do you foresee arising from your efforts to develop CIT through your respective areas of work?
