Thinking Routines

Thinking Routines are multi-step thinking processes. The processes are designed to incorporate different thinking strategies within a routine.

Thinking Routines are research-based from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Project Zero.

Many Thinking Routines are documented in the book Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners.
