Higher-Level Thinking Questions
Respect! Responsibility! Integrity! Honesty! How do you develop these valued character traits? In this book, you will find hundreds of questions, quotations and dilemmas to explore and develop character. Use quotations from famous folks as a springboard for writing and discussing, such as the following by Anne Frank: ‘The final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands. Why is your character ultimately your own responsibility?’ Use dilemmas to have students evaluate their own values and behaviours: ‘If someone doesn’t treat you with the respect you deserve, would you treat them with the respect they don’t deserve? Why or why not?’ And have students examine their own traits and those of others with provocative questions such as: ‘Are there ever situations where it is best to say something you don’t believe?’ Questions are provided in convenient reproducible question card format, perfect for the engaging cooperative questioning activities provided.
This book includes:
- hundreds of ready-to-use thinking questions on sixteen developing character concepts including citizenship, leadership, patience, values and morals, courage and more
- questions that generate critical and creative thinking for character development
- reproducible prompts for journal writing and activities for student-generated questions
- questions in convenient reproducible question card format, perfect for engaging cooperative questioning and analytical thinking.
