Goal of the Artful Thinking Program
To help students develop thinking dispositions
that support thoughtful learning in the arts,
and across school subjects.
What is it?
Visible Thinking is a flexible and
systematic research-based approach to
integrating the development of students'
thinking with content learning across
subject matters. An extensive and
adaptable collection of practices, Visible
Thinking has a double goal: on the one
hand, to cultivate students' thinking skills
and dispositions, and, on the other, to
deepen content learning. By thinking
dispositions, we mean curiosity, concern
for truth and understanding, a creative
mindset, not just being skilled but also
alert to thinking and learning opportunities
and eager to take them.
Huh?
We have routines
for everything
except thinking!
Ideally thinking
should be foremost
in students and
teachers minds.
If we make it both
routine and visible --
it will become so.
Uncovering Thinking
MYST - a routine for teachers.

Routines:
Practice, and pictures of practice
Spend 15 (or so) minutes with one routine.
Do the routine - make a quick note of your
responses & share it with others at your table.
We will unpack your responses together and
then look at implications for teaching.

Add to your thinking map:
I used to think, Now I think
Homework
Pick one routine
that we looked at
today & think of
how you might
use it in your
work.
Decide what type
of thinking you
would be looking
for from you
students.

Gallery Walk
In pairs, tour the documentation on the
wall. Spend time carefully looking at
one or two exhibits. Using the palette,
find examples of student thinking
dispositions.
What do you see?
What do you think about that?
What does it make you wonder?
Share your findings with another pair.
How do dispositions
develop?
By routinely engaging in
specific patterns of
behavior by doing
certain things regularly
Thinking Routines
Short, easy-to-learn
procedures that help
students engage in
thinking-dispositional
behavior in and
across the six areas
of the palette
What do you see?
What do you think about
that?
What does it make you
wonder?
SEE-THINK-WONDER
Why art?
Because of how works of
art make us think
Because of what works of
art make us think about
AT encourages curricular
connections along both of
these dimensions
How do concepts of thinking and concepts
of art compare?
Art a shift toward a recognition of art as a
complex object of meaning and inquiry
Thinking a shift from an achievement conception
of thinking to an inquiry conception

Visible Thinking / Documentation of student thinking
Gallery Walk
Tour the documentation on
the wall.
Use the LAST protocol with
one set of student work.
Teacher Study Groups
Study groups:
Professional growth and support
Generate, Sort, Connect, Elaborate
Take you thinking
maps add to them,
color code or move
items, connect items.
*If time allows, in small
groups, create one concept
map about thinking.
Many ways to make connections to the curriculum
