If you are using any of my Depth and Complexity resources, you are going to love the FREE posters I have designed for your classroom. These visual aids are effective mnemonic devices that will help your students understand and apply the 11 “thinking tools” of Depth and Complexity. After much thought and consideration, I introduce to you my icons for Depth and Complexity!
When I think of Rules, I think of “if-then”. IF X occurs, THEN Y will happen. Flowcharts are used as a visual representation of “if-then” processes. Flowcharts provide people with an idea of expected outcomes or a process sequence (both are based on rules). Rules also follow a hierarchy, which is also represented in the icon design.I hope you find these posters useful in your classroom! I have provided them in color and black-and-white.
