The teacher will take the role of someone with a “Green Hat”
If they have not already been decided upon in advance in an assembly, they will choose (or ask the class to vote on) one of the numerous “Imagine a world” discussion points which are provided (or invent one of their own). When the discussion point has been selected, each person in the class will be given a number between 2-5 (Red, Yellow, Black, White). Each student will then be given the rest of the lesson to formulate your responses to the discussion point using the information provided to help.
