This essay focuses on opportunities to accelerate talent. Typically, begin in the center cell of the frame, filling in your required content
Learners demonstrate logical reasoning when they draw conclusions from facts or premises; observe patterns and infer rules; use a systematic process to make sound judgments and form sensible arguments; and hypothesize and test. Some learners will have a natural inclination to use logical reasoning at a greater frequency, depth, or complexity. Explicitly creating goals to target this aptitude provides opportunities to accelerate talent. At the same time, talent-targeted goals encourage all learners’ logical reasoning to
Using the Talent Goal Frame You can use the Talent Goal Frame to create a talent-targeted goal for logical reasoning (see Figure 4.2). Typically, begin in the center cell of the frame, filling in your required content standards and specific objectives. Next, select the talent aptitude you want to target—in this instance, logical reasoning—keeping in mind that the seven cross-domain aptitudes can become goals in any content area. If your lesson module is part of a problem-based study such as Healthy Community by Design, you will already have an authentic context for the talent goal and performance of understanding. If not, the next step is to consider authentic applications of the content knowledge and skills.
the Talent Goal Frame planning process is not always linear. Depending on your existing curriculum parameters, you might begin with any cell in the frame. Successful innovators use logical reasoning to find and define the “real problem” that needs to be solved. four • Teach the Seven Aptitudes of Innovators 63 Sample Logical Reasoning Talent-Targeted Goal The logical reasoning Talent Goal Frame develops a goal from the STEM study Healthy Community by Design. The corresponding student-directed goal explicitly defines logical reasoning behaviors and supports self-efficacy. Logical Reasoning Goal Use logical reasoning to recognize patterns and implied relationships in order to determine a proportional scale for a model building in your
In what ways does this goal develop logical reasoning? Students must draw conclusions about proportional relationships, observe patterns and infer relationships Figure 4.2 Sample Talent Goal Frame: Logical Reasoning Talent Aptitude Content Standard Learning Objective Performance of Understanding 2.

lengths and areas of geometric figures to produce a scale drawing. Scale Model Apply Healthy Community by Design principles to determine the actual dimensions for the buildings in your plan. Choose one rectangular building and determine a reasonable scale factor to use in making a 3D scale model. Prove mathematically that your model is proportional to the original. Talent-Targeted Teaching and Learning Goal: STEM Healthy Community by Design (Grades 6–8) Use logical reasoning to
relationships in order to determine a proportional scale for a model building in your Healthy Community by Design plan. Student-Directed Talent Goal: I use logical reasoning to draw conclusions and make arguments that are based on facts and premises. I follow a systematic process to solve problems in a clear and sensible way. 64 Teach to Develop Talent between similar figures, use a systematic process to produce a scale drawing and model, make sound judgments regarding a reasonable scale factor, and test and verify that the model is proportional.
