Getting Started with The Big6

We believe kids are great thinkers. They ask questions and answer questions every day. We believe kids who know how to handle information well can successfully solve problems and make informed decisions. We believe that with a basic framework to sort and organize important thoughts and actions, kids can become systematic problem solvers. We believe in kids — successful, thinking, information-literate kids.

To support our belief in kids’ thinking skills, we developed a model with six stages called The Big6. The Big6 is a model to guide thinkers of all ages from the beginning — to middle — to the end of a project or problem. School students use the Big6 model to handle assignments and organize research projects. Adults use the Big6 model to navigate through a problem-solving or decision-making process. Know where you are in the thinking process and know what needs to come next to complete your work. We teach success.
