While planning out the activities I was going to included within my unit plan I needed to look at the pedagogical approaches which were suitable to be incorporated. Since my unit is in the subject area of Health with a topic of online safety this allows for a variety of approaches to be utilized. Health is a subject where collaboration and discussion is encouraged through the discussion of relevant and specific health concerns within the community.
In order for students to understand the severity of health concerns within the community multiple perspectives need to be explored. Using a teaching approach such as the De Bono six thinking hats it guides students to view different perspectives and approaches. The multiple hats can be used within lessons to guide discovery and enhance the student learning potential.
