      How can you support more engaged, critical thinking in the classroom? Project Zero, a research center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, has developed a free and comprehensive collection of thinking routines—sets of questions or short sequences of steps used to scaffold and deepen student thinking—to use in the classroom. Educators can sort the routines by subject area, thinking disposition or competence (e.g., exploring viewpoints; reasoning; questioning and investigating), or project type (e.g., visible thinking). As a bonus, these routines can be implemented in-person or adapted to a virtual or hybrid learning environment.

      EL’s experienced team of writers and editors produces Educational Leadership magazine, an award-winning publication that reaches hundreds of thousands of K-12 educators and leaders each year. Our work directly supports the mission of ASCD: To empower educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
