The 'What if?' key
This must be one of the most versatile 'Thinkers' key. This question can be asked in any topic or curriculum area
What if we changed the operation from + to x?
What if we added an oval shape to our angular tessellation?
What if statements challenging or offering a different path to the way the story went
After writing the supporting points and examples, challenge these statements with What if questions.
The What if Thinker key should be used extensively in Topic Studies as it leads the learner into challenging situations.
