Depth and Complexity Icon Posters are an easy-to-use 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 posters are available from J Taylor Education as a complete set (11 in all). The front of each card is the brightly colored icon with its name clearly showing. The poster also includes several questions related to the icon. These questions help to prompt deeper student thinking.
The Big Idea Icon is one of eight icons focusing on depth. It requires students to make a general statement related to a principle, theory, concept, or idea. This may include a main idea, universal concept, or generalization.
