Making Thinking Audible and Visible Via Cooperative Learning Book Description:

This chapter begins with a section that describes cooperative learning and explains eight cooperative learning principles. The second section looks briefly at why making thinking audible and visible enriches students' thinking. Making thinking audible means that teachers and students speak out what is going through their minds as they do a task, while making thinking visible means that teachers and students show what is going on in their minds as they go about a task. This visibility can be achieved via such means as writing out the steps in a mathematics equation while doing the task or using a graphic organizer such as a mind map to illustrate one's thinking. Section three shows cooperative learning techniques that can be used to make thinking audible and visible. As cooperative learning is a generic methodology, it can be used in any content area, with any age of student and at any stage in a unit of instruction, from introducing concepts to reviewing before an examination. Furthermore, cooperative learning fits well with other modes of instruction, such as teacher talk and individual work. Thus, in any one lesson students can usefully listen to the teacher, work cooperatively with peers and study alone. [This article was published in Jacobs, G. M., Wang, A., Li, X., & Xie, Y. (2008).

Creating Cultures of Thinking Book Description:

Discover why and how schools must become places where thinking is valued, visible, and actively promoted As educators, parents, and citizens, we must settle for nothing less than environments that bring out the best in people, take learning to the next level, allow for great discoveries, and propel both the individual and the group forward into a lifetime of learning. This is something all teachers want and all students deserve. In Creating Cultures of Thinking: The 8 Forces We Must Master to Truly Transform Our Schools, Ron Ritchhart, author of Making Thinking Visible, explains how creating a culture of thinking is more important to learning than any particular curriculum and he outlines how any school or teacher can accomplish this by leveraging 8 cultural forces: expectations, language, time, modeling, opportunities, routines, interactions, and environment. With the techniques and rich classroom vignettes throughout this book, Ritchhart shows that creating a culture of thinking is not about just adhering to a particular set of practices or a general expectation that people should be involved in thinking. A culture of thinking produces the feelings, energy, and even joy that can propel learning forward and motivate us to do what at times can be hard and challenging mental work.
