Making Thinking Visible: Building Understanding Through Critical and Creative Thinking
May 10-August 9, 2012
How can we activate students’ thinking to build understanding in the subject area? And how can we help students to think more critically and creatively at the same time?
During this course, you will learn to personalize and apply a research-based framework called Visible Thinking which is being used effectively in a number of schools. Adaptable to any subject area, Visible Thinking allows getting started almost at once with ‘thinking routines’ that help students ponder ideas from the subject area. These routines, together with other ‘cultural forces’ such as language and expectations, and often with the use of art and artifacts as conversational foci, create a vibrant culture of thinking and understanding in the classroom.
