Visible Thinking Course on the WIDE World

How can we activate students’ thinking to build understanding in the subject
areas? 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 areas. 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.
