The compass is going to be a tool I highly suggest educators at our school to incorporate into their teaching. It’s visual, collaborative, encourages deep-thinking and perspective shifts, it could be a differentiation tool like Kelly mentioned, and it’s so simple to implement! I can see it especially beneficial in IDU’s, within our service clubs and on our Field Studies programs.
Being a science teacher, I personally like the visual of the BOT graphs. I can see it working well in combination with the compass. Use the compass to understand the system, its interconnections and leverage points, then use the BOT graph to forecast potential solution strategies/interventions. I think that type of visual is clear, accessible, and thus hopefully a drive for action.
