Strategies and tools for making thinking visible

This packet, created by Concourse Village Elementary School, contains resources and guidance for classroom and schoolwide strategies for making student thinking visible. The packet includes the full five-step process map for their schoolwide shared reading practice, as well as anchor charts for classroom strategies that the school uses in reading and math. Educators can use these strategies and tools to build both classroom and schoolwide practices that support students’ critical thinking and metacognitive skills. The packet also contains a link to a video that documents Concourse Village's making thinking visible practices, as well as a professional learning activity that teams can engage in to deepen understanding of the practice and consider how they can build or incorporate those practices in their own work.
