Higher-order thinking questions (and their answers) are considered by many to be the holy grail of teaching. Teachers know when students "get it", but the question remains "How do you teach students to think explicitly and intentionally?"This book uses a series of diagrams to make thinking explicit by using students' personal experiences as the foundation for their thinking. Thinking Diagrams will help the reader move beyond understanding what metacognition is to teaching students how to understand their thinking in visual form. This book is filled with contemporary and practical insights regarding helping teachers of all levels foster classrooms rich in student thinking, creativity, and learning.
