Think Again: Using Thinking Routines
to Strengthen Student Writing

Elaine Hou, Director of Literacy and Two Rivers Learning Institute Faculty Member

Monica Powell, English Language Arts Teacher and Two Rivers Learning Institute Faculty Member


At Two Rivers, we stand by the belief that we learn better together, and that the best thinkers make their thinking visible to themselves and to one another. So how do we harness the power of collaboration and visible thinking to build stronger student writers? In this course, participants will learn a set of thinking routines that can deepen the schema building, discourse, and writing quality of all learners. This course is geared toward practitioners of all disciplines looking to strengthen the quality of writing and discussion cycles that will lead to increased complexity in student writing. Participants will leave with concrete tools and materials to begin implementing this work right away!

This course will meet from 7:00 PM to 8:30PM EST on Tuesdays on the following dates:

March 8, March 22, April 5, April 19, and May 3

Cost: $200 ($175 per person if registering two or more people from the same institution)
