Description

#CDLThinkingRoutines

Participants coming to this workshop will engage in deep reflection of the culture of our classrooms and where we can bring intentionality to aspects of teaching, learning, and developing understanding that are easy to overlook in the day-to-day busy pace of schools.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

In this workshop, Mark Church will invite participants to join him looking back and looking ahead at the role thinking routines play in making thinking routine. He’ll introduce us a number of new routines that have great potential to build on the kinds of learning habits teachers across grade levels and subject areas wish to cultivate in students. Throughout the workshop, Mark will examine and reflect upon powerful shifts he has noticed among teachers as they plan for thinking and stay sensitive to and aware of its role in the learning process.

WHO IS IT FOR?

This workshop is designed for those educators already familiar with the basics of Making Thinking Visible and Creating a Culture of Thinking. We will strive to create a learning experience that allows for multiple points of access for all gathered, though the design and intent of this course is to engage “experienced” colleagues with one another to take their efforts to promote student thinking to further, deeper levels. All participants will be required to bring some artifacts from their teaching practice that show efforts to “turn the volume up” on student thinking to some degree. These artifacts will serve as a launchpad for our looking back and looking ahead.

SESSION LEADER

Mark Church works with educators throughout the world striving to create cultures of thinking in their classrooms and schools. Mark challenges teachers to foster thinking dispositions in students in service of deep understanding. He invites teachers to promote a discourse of thinking in their classrooms that communicates value for student sense-making. Mark encourages teachers to make their classroom environments rich with the documents of student thinking processes.

Mark is currently a consultant with Harvard Project Zero’s Making Thinking Visible and Cultures of Thinking initiatives worldwide, drawing upon his own classroom teaching experience and from the perspectives he has gained working with educators throughout North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe. Mark enjoys helping teachers examine opportunities for student thoughtfulness, use thinking routines as supports and scaffolds, interact with students in ways that demonstrate interest in and respect for students’ thinking, and send clear expectations about the importance and value of thinking in learning. Together with Ron Ritchhart and Karin Morrison, Mark is co-author of the book Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners (Jossey-Bass, 2011).
