Good morning!


I have attached some information that I hope you find useful.  Please note that when these pages were scanned they were positioned side-by-side and not necessarily related to one another.  I hope this does not confuse you.  Please let me know if you have questions or need clarification and I am happy to help!


I have included the definition of Thinking Routines as well as some routine frameworks you may be able to adapt and incorporate into your tours. There is a handout (summary of slides) on Artful Thinking, based on thinking dispositions (routines), similar to VTS or Visual Thinking Strategies. Lastly, you will find a wonderful paper written by Dave Perkins from Harvard University about the nature of understanding.
