Webinar - Creating Thinking Classrooms: Making Learning Visible
Educators are told that they need to foster critical thinking skills in the minds of the students they teach, but teaching students to think critically remains a challenge for many teachers. Teaching often requires teachers to deliver required curriculum content at the expense of strategies that encourage and enable the teaching and learning in their classrooms; teaching for thinking can get sidelined in the process. This webinar blends what we know about learning, thinking and instructional techniques (e.g. referencing the work of H. Lynn Erickson, S. Joel Warrican and Project Zero: Visible Thinking, Harvard Graduate School of Education) that can foster critical dispositions in students and encourage and enable them to make their thinking visible to themselves, their peers and their teachers.
