Western Australia's association for gifted support, advocacy and resources
Crafting abstract questions is essential for educators working with gifted learners. As technology reshapes industries, we need to guide our students to develop problem-solving abilities that transcend routine tasks, and abstract questions encourage them to explore complex concepts, analyze situations from multiple angles, and devise innovative solutions. The Australian Curriculum V9 – has highlighted these skills in their refined General Capabilities in Critical and Creative Thinking Skills and Ethical Understanding. Amanda will share with you her strategies for crafting abstract questions that empower students to become agile thinkers equipped to excel in the dynamic and innovative challenges of the future. This will be an active workshop - participants can bring a unit of work with them and they’ll leave with a range of questions to use with their classes.
