I’ve written several posts about Project Zero’s “Thinking Routines.” You can see many of those posts at The Best Posts & Articles About Asking Good Questions — Help Me Find More.
Here are a few more:
Let’s make our thinking visible! is a post from Oxford University Press teaching blog, and talks about Visible Thinking Routines.
And the Smithsonian released “Using Global Thinking Strategies with Latino Content.” Here’s how they describe it:
Teachers looking to foster in their students a broader understanding and appreciation of today’s complex world can use these Learning Lab collections that pair Harvard’s Project Zero Global Thinking Routines with new bilingual Latino-content videos of National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum curators discussing works in the collection.
Each Learning Lab teaching collection includes additional supporting materials to add dimension, expand the activity, and deepen students’ learning.
Now that I’ve shared those resources, the real point of this post is to talk about their free eBook titled Global Thinking.
Here’s how they describe it:
Global Thinking offers thinking routines that foster understanding and appreciation of today’s complex globalized world. The materials and tools include a framework to think about global competence and offer clarity about various capacities associated with global competence. The bundle describes how to plan and document your experiences bringing global thinking routines into your classroom and to share these experiences with others.
It’s a great book. Not only does it share thinking routines, but it shares excellent ideas for how and when to use them!
