Product description

From the Inside Flap

MAKING THINKING VISIBLE

How can classrooms become places of intellectual stimulation where learning is viewed not in test scores but in the development of individuals who can think, plan, create, question, and engage independently as learners?

Making Thinking Visible offers educators research-based solutions for creating just such cultures of thinking. This innovative book unravels the mysteries of thinking and its connection to understanding and engagement. It then takes readers inside diverse learning environments to show how thinking can be made visible at any grade level and across all subject areas through the use of effective questioning, listening, documentation, and facilitative structures called thinking routines. These routines, designed by researchers at Project Zero at Harvard, scaffold and support one’s thinking. By applying these processes, thinking becomes visible as learners’ ideas are expressed, discussed, and reflected upon.

Making Thinking Visible includes a DVD of instructive video clips featuring visible thinking strategies being applied in a variety of classrooms.

PRAISE FOR MAKING THINKING VISIBLE

“There is a worldwide movement afoot to make the development of the intellect a priority for education in the twenty-first century. This book will become a landmark in that journey.”
—ARTHUR L. COSTA, Ed.D., professor emeritus, California State University, Sacramento; coauthor, Habits of Mind series

Making Thinking Visible is essential reading for every educator who strives to provide students with the skills they need to become thoughtful and enthusiastic directors of their own learning.”
—TINA BLYTHE, author, The Teaching for Understanding Guide and Looking Together at Student Work

“When thinking is made visible, learning is inevitable. Making Thinking Visible invites the reader to craft a new definition of education and presents a dramatic leap forward for education.”
—ADAM SCHER, school principal, Bloomfield Hills Schools, Michigan

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars DAMAGED AND LATE
By Michael L. on January 2, 2019
I got the package 2 days late after I had selected the free next day shipping on Sunday, which should have arrived Monday, as it said on the site. Then when I opened the pouch it was damaged at the top as you can see in the picture. It's still readable but I would like some sort of a refund for the damaged good. Thanks
