Event Details

Two decades into the use of thinking routines as vehicles of instruction, we understand more about their usefulness to teachers and their effects on learners. This course explores Ritchhart and Church's six specific areas of “powerful effects” while introducing participants to some new thinking routines. Session One delves into how making thinking visible practices foster deep learning, cultivate engagement, and change the role of both the students and teachers. Session Two focuses on using thinking routines with three specific aims: as a formative assessment practice, to improve learning, and to develop thinking dispositions. The workshop will support educators working with learners from pre-K through secondary school as well as with all ages of adult learners.
