Lab's Ways of Thinking


Charlotte Lab School's Ways of Thinking

Aligned with our Core Values, the Lab School will focus on students' development of these four Ways of Thinking:


GLOBAL THINKING:

What's the impact of what I'm doing? How do others view this problem? What are the various perspectives on this problem and the approach I'm taking? How can I work with others to tackle this problem?


REFLECTIVE THINKING:

What am I learning from this? What questions will help me to learn more? What strategies will help me to learn best? What process makes most sense? How will I apply what I'm learning to other situations?


INNOVATIVE THINKING:

Why...? What if...? What are alternative ways of doing this? How is this problem tackled in other fields, places, mindsets? What hasn't been tried or worked before?


REAL WORLD THINKING:

How would an expert tackle this? How might a ________ view or solve this? What's the most authentic way to learn/experience/present/share this?
