Free Teacher Webinar, Thursday February 18: Visible Thinking Routines and Primary Sources

Share this post:

When students learn strategies to make their thinking visible, they progress from learning to think to thinking to learn. When teachers combine visible thinking strategies with primary sources, the result can be powerful student engagement and learning.

Join us for a one-hour interactive webinar, February 18 at 4pm EST, to examine how visible thinking routines from Project Zero can play a key role in learning with primary sources. We will explore and practice several routines that we’ve modeled in Library of Congress Summer Teacher Institutes.

Have a favorite visible thinking routine that you’ve used in your classroom? We’d love to hear about it during the webinar! Join us and participate in our chat-based back-channel that will be live throughout the hour.

If you can’t participate in the webinar, you can view a recording which will be available shortly after the session. Recordings of past events, information on future webinars, and information about joining the webinar are available here.

Whether or not you can join us on the 18th, if you have a favorite visible thinking routine or classroom story, please share it in the comments below.

Update, Feb. 19:  A link to the recording is available here.
