Thinking Routines: Establishing Patterns of thinking in the classroom

About this resource

In Making Thinking Visible, thinking routines are used regularly to help make students’ thinking visible and as a tool for deepening students’ understanding. The power of thinking routines comes from using them to establish patterns of thinking in the classroom. This details how teachers can work with thinking routines to transform the classrooms into cultures of thinking and is also beneficial to anyone interested in learning about and participating in design thinking challenges.
