Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners (Paperback published May 3, 2011)
A proven program for enhancing students’ thinking and comprehension abilities
Visible Thinking is a research-based approach to teaching thinking, which began at the University of Harvard’s Project Zero, that develops students’ thinking dispositions, while at the same time deepening their understanding of the topics they study. Rather than a set of fixed lessons, Visible Thinking is a varied collection of practices, including thinking routines, small sets of questions or a short sequence of steps, as well as the documentation of student thinking. Using this process thinking becomes visible as the students’ different viewpoints are expressed, documented, discussed and reflected upon.
