These are more strings to add to the bow; knowing when to use and apply each strategy is the trick. Within ELA, and working with all second language students, we implement a lot of SIOP strategies to get kids communicating and thinking across all 4 language domains. These systems thinking tools allow students to go deeper in their exploration of concepts and EQs than the activities that I currently use. I will definitely use the compass tool more often, and build in the iceberg visual thinking strategy to compliment it. I can’t currently think how I would apply the causation loop and time graph into my context and curriculum, but they’re strings that are added and I can dive into my box of tricks to fetch them when the time comes.
