At the core of Visible Thinking are practices that help make thinking visible: Thinking Routines loosely guide learners' thought processes and encourage active processing.
Patricia Palmer worked as a researcher and project manager on Innovating with Intelligence, the project that launched the Visible Thinking approach to developing thinking dispositions. With Shari Tishman she is the co-developer of Artful Thinking, a program that integrates arts into the curriculum in order to strengthen student thinking and learning. The program is part of the Visible Thinking initiative at Project Zero – a research-based approach to teaching thinking that links an international network of schools and other learning organizations.
Patricia managed the project that produced the study, The Qualities of Quality: Excellence in Arts Education and How to Achieve It. She was a researcher on Teaching in the Visual Arts (Studio Thinking Project) study and the Museum of Modern Art’s Visual Thinking Curriculum Project. She assisted on the Art Works for Schools Curriculum.
Patricia is a visual artist and previously taught in New York City independent and public schools. She received her Ed.M. from the Arts in Education program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She is currently the Director of Art Education at Montserrat College of Art.
