Teacher Behaviors that Support ‘Thinking’

  • MODELING

  • Emulating others is a basic way of learning.

  • Model what you expect. Do not be a “do as I say, not as I do” educator.

  • STRUCTURING

  • Clear expectations

  • Thinking happens throughout the school day, across content areas, and over extended periods of time.

  • Opportunities for interaction

  • Address all learning styles

  • QUESTIONING

  • Higher-level questioning

  • Learners must be presented with problems and questions, the answers to which are not apparent.

  • RESPONDING

  • Wait time

  • Accepting without judgment

  • Clarify when you don’t understand

  • Academic Feedback

  • Empathizing


Development

Objective:

  • Teachers will connect thinking and problem solving and develop a lesson incorporating both the process and the product.

TASK: Bring back three student samples of the student product.

Questions to ask yourself during development time:

  • When are you going to implement this in your class?

  • What will this problem solving process look like in your class?

  • Specifics:

    What questions will you use?

    How can you build this in your lesson plan?

    Develop the thinking script and product model.
