Apply Thinking Guide

Apply Thinking Guide

Use the latest theory-grounded approach! The FREE Apply Thinking Guide will help students learn to apply knowledge and tackle complex unfamiliar questions. It scaffolds the cognitive processes which research shows good problem-solvers use. 

The Apply Thinking Guide takes the form of a fully editable template you can use to teach with worked examples and students can use while they answer apply questions. The Apply Thinking Guide builds on Detect, Recall, Solve from the Practice Books.

Why use the thinking guide?

  • Model your thinking for solving worked examples step-by-step
  • Helps students learn a thinking strategy for apply questions
  • Reduce cognitive load so students learn more from worked examples
  • Creates a habit of attacking questions rigorously
  • Helps students reflect after trying a problem to improve their approach

    How to use the thinking guide

    • Adapt it to any problem type by editing the stages.
    • Add scaffolding to the template for difficult problems
    • Edit the checklist to give ‘metacognitive’ advice
    • Provide model answers for students to use in problem solving
    • Get students to compare written answers and give feedback
