Attended a wonderful workshop yesterday on a new district mandate, Thinking Maps.
What are Thinking Maps? Good question!
Thinking Maps is a language of eight specific visual patterns each based on a fundamental thought process. These patterns are used individually and in combination across every grade level and curriculum area as an integrated set of tools for successful life-long learning. This common visual language requires unique, professional training and resources for every individual implementing Thinking Maps throughout the learning community.
Thinking Maps are a good way of organizing thought processes and allowing the students to tracking their thought process.
I look foreword to implementing and using these Thinking Maps!
