Using Thinking Routines to Make Thinking Visible

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The use of thinking routines and the idea of making students’ learning and thinking visible originated at Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education, and has captured the interest of schools and teachers worldwide.  With such popularity, we sometimes get superficial use of the routines.  For example, teachers may use thinking routines as simple activities. However, the real power of thinking routines comes from using them to establish patterns of thinking in the classroom, but how do teachers move beyond the use of routines as good activities to their establishment as patterns of thinking?  What do classrooms look like when such patterns take hold?  In this interactive master class, participants will have a chance to learn how teachers are working with thinking routines to transform their classrooms into cultures of thinking, and to use the routines themselves to see how they work as tools for all learners.
