Ritchhart, R., Church, M., and Morrison, K. (2011). Making thinking visible: How to promote engagement, understanding, and independence for all learners. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.
In Making Thinking Visible, the authors propose that we must make our students’ thinking visible in order to create places of intellectual stimulation. To do this, the authors suggest first determining which modes of thinking are necessary for our disciplines or courses. Then, through a series of research-based thinking routines, we can scaffold and support the development of individuals who can think, plan, create, question, and engage independently as learners. If you are looking for both inspiration and pragmatic strategies, this book offers ideas that can be applicable to all educational settings and audiences.
