Thinking Out Loud
When we are thinking out loud, we're better able to understand the processes by which our mind takes us to arrive at a conclusion. The trouble is, how do we get our students to show their thinking in a very real way? Thinking isn't what is shown as the answer on the paper; it's everything that happens before that moment. In order for us to truly make learning significant for our students, we need to find ways that help them to share their thinking with us so that we can understand their true growth in our classrooms. For today's free Friday, we're sharing an infographic with a few tips for getting your students to make their thinking more tangible. By using these four tips, you'll begin to see more refinement in student thinking processes, and discover new ways to assess true student learning. Happy Friday!
