This week we talked about a brainstorming technique using the mnemonic SCAMPER to engage creative thinking. Check out this Youtube video that illustrates this technique:
This model helps you generate ideas for new work products (e.g., in this case reading, writing, math, science, social studies, art etc.) by encouraging you to think about how you could improve existing ones.
Next week we will practice using this technique when thinking critically and creatively about our reading comprehension. We will also apply this technique to generating Social Studies inquiry questions. Get ready to extend your learning!
