Just home from the book launch of Ron Ritchhart’s new book with the same title as this post. It is co-authored by Mark Church and Karin Morrison.
It is subtitled “How to promote engagement, understanding and independence for all learners” and contains many practical examples of how real teachers have used the Project Zero thinking routines in their classes.
I was lucky enough to receive my own signed copy as one of my classes using the Micro Lab protocol is described in the book.
You can read about the new book here.
A more detailed description of what we did in my Y12 class can be found in an earlier post here.
