THE 8 CULTURAL FORCES THAT DEFINE OUR CLASSROOMS

Time

Allocating time for thinking by providing time for exploring topics more in depth as well as time to formulate thoughtful responses.

Opportunities

Providing purposeful activities that require students to engage in thinking and the development of understanding as part of their ongoing experience of the classroom.

Routines & Structures

Scaffolding students’ thinking in the moment as well as providing tools and patterns of thinking that can be used independently.

Language

Using a language of thinking that provides students with the vocabulary for describing and reflecting on thinking.

Modeling

Modeling of who we are as thinkers and learners so that the process of our thinking is discussed, shared, and made visible.

Interactions & Relationships

Showing a respect for and valuing of one another’s contributions of ideas and thinking in a spirit of ongoing collaborative inquiry.

Physical Environment

Making thinking visible by displaying the process of thinking and development of ideas. Arranging the space to facilitate thoughtful interactions.

Expectations

Setting an agenda of understanding and conveying clear expectations. Focusing on the value for thinking and learning as outcomes as opposed to mere completion of “work.”

Thinking Routines are an easy doorway into growing/shifting the cultural forces to promote, value, and make visible student thinking by using tools, protocols, structures, and patterns of routine

VISIBLE THINKING ROUTINE:

“ZOOM IN”

What do you see or notice?

What is your hypothesis or interpretation of what this might be, based on what you are seeing?

What new things do you see?

How does this change your interpretation?

Has the new information answered any of your wonders or changed your previous ideas?

What new things do you see?

How does this change your interpretation?

Has the new information answered any of your wonders or changed your previous ideas?

What lingering questions remain for you about this image?
