Visible Thinking is a flexible and systematic research-based approach to integrating the development of students' thinking with content learning across subject matters. An extensive and adaptable collection of practices, Visible Thinking has a double goal: on the one hand, to cultivate students' thinking skills and dispositions, and, on the other, to deepen content learning. This website provides a convenient way to learn about Visible Thinking as well as thorough descriptions of the ideals, routines and activities that we've developed from research in K-12 schools.
