Why a Culture of Thinking? Our Goals as educators: We want students to retain knowledge

We want students to understand knowledge We want students to use knowledge Why a Culture of Thinking?

Learning is a consequence of thinking. Retention, understanding, and the active use of knowledge can be brought about only by learning experiences in which learners think

about and think with what they are learning. (Perkins, 1992) What is a routine? Thinking routines are easy to use, mini strategies that are repeatedly used in the

classroom. They are a small set of questions or a short sequence of steps that can be used across various grade levels and content. Routines help direct student thinking and structure classroom discussions.

So Where Do We Start? Grouping (NAPLAN, PAT etc.) I need to know more! Lets start with attitude.. If Maths Was a Fruit

If Maths was a Vegetable. C.S.I. Colour, Symbol, Image

Think, Puzzle, Explore! This routine helps students connect to prior knowledge, stimulates curiosity and lays the groundwork for independent inquiry. It is useful when you are beginning a topic and when you

want students to develop their own questions of investigation. Think, Puzzle, Explore What do you think you know about this?

What puzzles you about this? What would you like to explore to further? The Mogstars talk fractions!
