Thinking Strategies Insitute
Learning is a complex intellectual activity. It is the thinking strategies that enable learners to make sense of complex texts, academic standards, and content. In this institute, educators will learn how to explicitly teach, support, and plan for deeper thinking with the thinking strategies within in the context of instructional best practices. You’ll visit PEBC Lab Classrooms where teachers and students use thinking strategies on a regular basis. We’ll explore ways to promote deep learning by fostering engagement, access, and understanding, and how the workshop model, rich student discourse, and thinking oriented classroom communities provide time for teacher modeling, student practice and self-reflection. Thinking to learn, and learning to think.
