One of the best ways to help your gifted students exercise their critical thinking skills is by differentiating your lessons with depth and complexity, and educator Daniel Brillhart says that using depth and complexity icons can be the key.
The depth and complexity icons help your students look past the first interpretation of the text and dig deep into the rich layers of the content they read. The icons serve as a visual tool to help your students identify key elements of the text.
