Resource type: Ideas and inspiration and exemplars for classroom use

This site hosts a range of activities to make thinking visible in the classroom it has been developed by the Harvard University Project Zero team. All of the strategies and activities are provided with key guidance on use. They are filterable by subject domain and thinking competence, so feel free to explore. For each thinking activity, or 'routine' try clicking on the 'resource' tab to the right to find a simple PDF outlining the activity. One example is the +1 technique, whereby students pass their work to the right in order to allow the student next to them to review it and add one suggestion. This is one of many activities you'll find are tailored to be picked up and directly used in the classroom.
