PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created this graphic organizer to accompany the Color, Symbol, Image thinking routine introduced in the book, "Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners," by Ron Ritchhart, Mark Church, and Karin Morrison

Color, Symbol, Image is a routine for distilling the essence of ideas nonverbally.

Directions:
1. As you are reading/listening/watching, make note of things that you find interesting, important, or insightful.
2. When you finish, choose 3 of these items that most stand out for you.
3. For one of these, choose a color that you feel best represents or captures the essence of that idea.
4. For another one, choose a symbol that you feel best represents or captures the essence of that idea.
5. For the other one, choose an image that you feel best represents or captures the essence of that idea.
6. Record your color, symbol, and image in the graphic organizer. In the provided lines, briefly describe the thinking behind your color, symbol, and image.
7. With a partner or group first share your color and then share what it represents.
8. Explain why you choose that color as a representation of that idea.
9. Repeat the sharing process until every member of the group has shared his or her color, symbol, and image.

I recommend completing this thinking routine upon the completion of a reading, the viewing of a video, or any specific and intentional learning experience. For example, after teaching a unit on solving algebraic equations in math class, facilitate this thinking routine as a wrapping up activity. Or, assign this graphic organizer as a note-taking tool to accompany a reading homework assignment. The possibility are endless.
