Making Thinking Visible

This course focuses on developing critical and creative thinkers who can operate in and competently address the issues and challenges of a global age. It focuses on the practice of critical and creative thinking through the use of thinking routines and promotes student engagement, understanding, and independence by making thinking visible. Participants examine the standards and dispositions of critical and creative thinkers, as they explore precise and emotive language, effective communication, inferential reasoning, logical fallacies, thinking from multiple perspectives, creative problem solving, and media literacy. Based in the context of global issues and challenges, the course models over 21 critical and creative thinking routines for the classroom that make thinking visible, foster collaboration and communication, and enhance engagement and understanding in a culture of thinking.
