Visible Thinking

Visible Thinking is something that has been generating a lot of discussion and interest in educational circles.

The main objective is to provide a scaffold through visible thinking routines, to allow students thinking to become visible, cultivate students thinking skills and to deepen content learning. Schools all around the world are implementing a range of visible thinking routines from Harvard's Project Zero (developed by Harvard's Graduate School of Education)



Examples:
  • Claim - Support - Question
  • See - Think - Wonder or Think - Puzzle - Explore
  • Colour - Symbol - Image
  • I use to think/ I now think
  • The 4 C's
  • Tug of War
  • PMI (Plus Minus Interesting)
  • Brainstorm
  • Venn Diagram
  • What makes you say that
  • Headlines
  • Hands on Activities
