DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE:
This course is designed to explore visible thinking routines, and how they can be applied in an early learning program. Participants will define what makes a thinking routine unique, explore and adapt specific visible thinking routines and discuss how these routines can be used in the classroom. Vignettes, reports of classroom observations and recorded examples will serve to focus conversations and provide a starting point for conversations about adapting and adopting routines in participant’s respective contexts and settings. Using the current research, participants will consider the early learning environments as a rich setting for deeper thinking and documentation.
