A Deep and Complex Look...

Big image
This month our Liberty GT students and 5th graders will begin an introduction to the Depth and Complexity Icons program. Depth and Complexity Icons are visual prompts designed to help students go beyond surface level understanding of a concept and enhance their ability to think critically. These critical thinking tools help students dig deeper into a concept (depth) and understand that concept with greater complexity. You may notice these icons in upcoming GT and classroom work as our students take a deeper and more complex look at everything they study. Check out the link for more information about the icons and their meanings.
