Synectics Student Training

This is a teaching/learning strategy. Display a variety of photos on the wall around the classroom. Ask students to think to themselves about how they feel their health is right now. Ask that they think about different aspects of their health. Explain to students that while they are thinking about their health, you would like them to look around the room at the various pictures hanging up. After about twenty seconds, ask students to stand by one of the pictures that best represents their own health. Within their groups, students can share why the photo best represents their health. Once all students have had a chance to share within their groups, ask for someone from each group to report back to the larger group about some of the ideas that were shared within their groups.
