A proven program for enhancing students'' thinking and comprehension abilities

Visible Thinking is a research-based approach to teaching thinking, begun at Harvard''s Project Zero, that develops students'' thinking dispositions, while at the same time deepening their understanding of the topics they study.  Rather than a set of fixed lessons, Visible Thinking is a varied collection of practices, including thinking routines?small sets of questions or a short sequence of steps?as well as the documentation of student thinking. Using this process thinking becomes visible as the students'' different viewpoints are expressed, documented, discussed and reflected upon.
