Have You Seen This Guy Around Southern View?

Southern View Problem Solver

Have you seen this guy in the Thinking Cap around Southern View? I hope you have, he's our problem solver. Teachers are posting this picture or holding it up when they need students to be problem solvers and use their higher level thinking skills (in other words when you have to say, "Whoa..." and think before you give an answer). If you see that image hanging in the halls, you know that activity was one that used higher level or critical thinking skills. At Southern View, we are striving to become a community of problem solvers and this is one way we are teaching our students that they have to think deeply or differently about what they are learning. When you are visiting Southern View, look for the "Problem Solver".
