B is for Brainstorm

Recently I researched attributes of a critical thinker and what it means to be creative. My hope was to be able to empower my students with the knowledge that both skills (critical thinking and creativity) can be developed. But, it takes work. I noticed that brainstorming was one way to develop both skills. Critical thinkers brainstorm ideas and solutions, while creative people brainstorm to generate ideas. So I thought wouldn't it be cool for my students to have a notebook to brainstorm and jot down ideas during any time of the day. This is my prototype and I will be sharing some of my students "Awesome Ideas." With their permission of course :)
