The Place

Visible Thinking developed by  Project Zero (Harvard University) was preceded by the Theory of Multiple Intelligences and Teaching for Understanding. It evolved from these ideas, and now is being implemented in language teaching. This workshop looks at some areas like: group formation to create a thinking community, using visible thinking routines, documenting students’ thinking, selecting authentic materials to initiate thinking processes, and integrating teaching language and thinking routines.
