The Critical Thinking Triangle® In Action! Thought Process Manipulative was created to make specific use of the Critical Thinking Triangle®—the crux of the Story Grammar Marker®, our tool for narrative development, story-telling, personal narratives, comprehension, writing and social communication.
This Manipulative is an enhancement to Story Grammar Marker® and contains 5 elements that connect and interact among each other to enable students to think about their thinking: to infer, solve problems, resolve conflicts, take perspective and more!
Thinking deserves its own hands-on tool. This new tool makes it possible for children to actually manipulate, talk about, and comprehend the elements of the Critical Thinking Triangle® including:
Kick-Off or problem, the unexpected happening resulting in a change to the Setting
Emotions or Feelings
Mental States/Thinking Verbs/thought process
Plans/Intentions to determine actions
Cohesive Ties (conjunctions) to build complex sentence structures to communicate the story
