Spark Deeper Learning with Thinking Routines

Course 5268

You may have heard of Think-Pair-Share or See-Think-Wonder, but did you know these are thinking routines? Developed through research from Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, thinking routines are simple structures designed to be used individually or collaboratively to support deeper thinking and learning. Sets of questions or short steps may be used again and again, with any grade, content, or context to make students’ thinking visible, enabling metacognition and formative assessment. With many opportunities to practice their “thinking moves” in a supportive classroom culture, student engagement and understanding are enhanced. In this practical and applicable course, you will explore ways to pair tech tools with thinking routines that spark the skills students need to be creative, critical, and curious 21st Century learners!
