De Bono's Thinking Hats


These cards have been adapted from ideas found in De Bono, E. (1992), Six thinking hats for schools: book 3, Hawker Brownlow, Cheltenham, Vic.

I made these cards years ago to use with my students when they were working in their collaborative discussion groups. When I listened to what they were saying and if I felt they were getting off track or they needed to think in a different way, I would put one of the 'hats' cards on the table and ask them to consider the questions on them.
