This storyboard does not have a description.
As our global ecomomy is expanding, us teachers need to prepare you to become valuable assets to compete in the 21st century. One important skill you will need is being able to think critically! Today, I will assign a project that will help you become critical thinkers.
What is critically thinking?
There are a lot of ways to show critical thinking, but it basically means being able to actively and skillfully apply, analyze, synthesize, or evaluate information gathered from or generated by observing, experiencing, reflecting, reasoning, or communicating as your guide to what you believe and how you will act up on it.
How do we critically think?
Today's critical thinkers are being asked to compare evidence...
develop better products for our global society...
employ critical thinking skills to better serve customers...
and even think about how solutions to the biggest international problems like global warming.
To foster your critical thinking, I want you think about a job or career you want to have when you grow up. Consider the possibilities to be endless. Think about all of the physical requirements of that job and how you will be able to maintain those physical requirements for that specific job. Present your findings to the class by creating a PowerPoint Presentation, a Prezi, or a digital story board (like this one).
By fulfilling this assignment, you 9th graders we will be addressing these two state standards for physical education: STANDARD 2 : Students achieve a level of physical fitness for health and performance while demonstrating knowledge of fitness concepts, principles, and strategies. STANDARD 2.6 : Identify the physical fitness requirements of an occupation.
I know that through this project, you will think independently, develop your own perspective, assess the situations, recognize key aspects of your job requirements, and develop confidence in your findings. All of these are key skills of a critical thinker. Remember, one cannot learn well without thinking well! Think away and learn!
