Description

One-day Leading a Culture of Thinking Seminar

* This event can also be combined with the two-day Cultures of Thinking Seminar from 7-8 November.

This one day course, following the two-day exploration of a Culture of Thinking, is designed for those interested in thinking more about how they can extend, grow, and support the learning at their schools. This includes teacher leaders, mentors, coaches, and just general enthusiasts about these ideas. Participants may be anywhere in their journey about developing a culture of thinking from just starting out to more experienced. We will examine tools, frameworks, and practices that the Cultures of Thinking project has developed to support the development of cultures of thinking at the school-wide level. This one-day session serves as an opportunity both to develop a deeper vision of Cultures of Thinking and to put in place structures for supporting professional conversations and teacher learning at the school.

A key principle of the Cultures of Thinking project is that for classrooms to be cultures of thinking for students, schools have to be cultures of thinking for teachers. The COT Leadership Day is aimed at laying the groundwork for this development by exploring ways participants might build on and extend the professional learning culture that currently exists at their schools. In the COT project, we see the most gains in student performance and school transformation when schools make the discussion of thinking, examination of student work, and the taking of risks in trying new teaching practices central to the work of the school. This often demands that schools shift and change the types of conversations they have to better focus them on issues of teaching and learning than on issues of schooling.
