Critical and Creative Thinking / Levels 3 and 4 / Reasoning
Content description
Identify and use ‘If, then…’ and ‘what if…’ reasoning
  1. using the sentence starter ‘What if…’ to explore possible consequences
  2. using ‘what if…’ or ‘imagine that…’ to find examples to explore the strength of suggestions
  3. identifying how ‘if, then…’ reasoning can be used to move from separate pieces of information to a conclusion, for example reasoning from historical sources (i) If a First Fleet convict in the colony were found guilty of a crime then they were punished; and (ii) this convict was found guilty of being disrespectful; to (iii) inferring the convict went on to be punished
