de Bono's six thinking hats are used to support critical thinking and higher order comprehension. Explicit questions are provided for each of the six thinking hats, to support students to think deeply about the text, "The Lorax" by Dr Seuss. Students work in small co-operative groups to discuss key issues in the text. The resource builds on accountable talk, critical literacy and philosophical inquiry.
This would allow students to think more deeply about what they read. By bringing in actual hats to represent these components, you could put together a cohesive class writing that represents the thoughts of multiple students.
