J Taylor Education’s Depth and Complexity Icon Cards: Trends

By J Taylor Education

Depth and Complexity Icon Cards are the quintessential tool for differentiation. Depth & Complexity Icons are the visual prompts designed to help students go beyond surface level understanding of a concept while enhancing their ability to think critically. These cards are available from J Taylor Education as a complete set (12 in all). The front of each card is the brightly colored icon with its name clearly showing. The back of each card contains multiple lists and starter ideas related to the depth & complexity icon that is pictured. The final card in the set shows all 11 of the dimensions together.

The Trends Icon is one of eight icons focusing on depth. It requires students to understand and evaluate the general direction of change. This direction may be influenced by varied forces e.g. current styles or tendencies.
