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!
Rules explain “if-then” situations. IF X occurs, THEN Y will happen. Flowcharts are representations “if-then” processes. Flowcharts provide people with an idea of expected outcomes or a process sequence. Rules also follow a hierarchy, which the icon design also represents.
I hope you find these posters useful in your classroom! I have provided them in color and black-and-white. Please check out my other Depth and Complexity resources!
