In this unit I have included 3 thinking routines that can be easily implemented in the K-2 classroom. The three routines are called See-Think-Wonder, Chalk Talk, and Color-Symbol-Image. For each routine, I have included 3 mini-lessons that can be used repeatedly throughout the school year across the subject areas.
Visible Thinking is a framework for creating lessons that engages students in higher level thinking. Created through Harvard’s Project Zero, now Visible Thinking is being implemented in the K-12 classroom.
