Learning How to Think – ‘That Thinking Thing’

Critical thinking, creative thinking, higher level thinking, deep thinking, thinking skills, thinking tools, analysis, evaluation, synthesis, inferencing, generalizing, predicting, comparing, contrasting, relating, classifying, grouping, sorting…What does it all mean? How are teachers meant to practically address all of this with their learners? How are learners meant to take control over their own thinking?
In this workshop Lane will explore critical and creative thinking and what it means to become a skillful thinker and ultimately, deep thinker.  She will demystify the infusion of thinking into classroom practice and will explore a practical approach to transitioning cognitive control from the realm of the teacher to that of the learner.  


Participants WILL leave this session with greater clarity when it comes to…’that thinking thing’!
