To review the learning of a pupil in the light of Susan Hart’s Framework for Innovative Thinking

Aim

To review the learning of a pupil in the light of Susan Hart’s Framework for Innovative Thinking.

Evidence and reflection

Think of a child or young person who is puzzling you, and review an example of their learning activities which surprised you or which you thought they might have done better.

Write a brief account of what happened.

Now use Hart’s framework to reflect on what happened. Does it help in illuminating possible interpretations? What more would it be helpful to know? How might you find this out?

Extension

Share what you have written with a colleague who also knows the child or young person. How does their understanding match or contrast with yours? Why do you think this is? What teaching strategies seem most appropriate for the future?
