Thinking Hats

Six Thinking Hats


            This strategy devised by Edward de Bono helps students visualize separate modes of thinking about a topic by wearing a range of six different ‘thinking’ hats. His hope is that by doing so he will enable children to realize that they have choices about the kind of thinking they use for any task, whether it be a discussion, making a decision or solving a problem. Thinking hats also encourage students to avoid becoming “stuck” in one kind of thinking and thereby not taking into account a range of possibilities or points of view.
