How to use Visible Thinking as an Approach to Support all Learners in the Classroom

In a visible thinking classroom, differentiation takes on a unique form. The goal is to provide all learners with a way to represent their thinking visually, which can help them build confidence to deepen their learning. By making space for individual thinking and creating multiple entry points to curricular outcomes, students with varying strengths and weaknesses can thrive. The focus is on the process of thinking and encouraging students to record their thoughts through any means that is approachable for them such as through drawings and visuals instead of written text. This approach removes barriers to thinking for some students and allows everyone to contribute to the collective thinking and knowledge of the class. By meeting students where they are in their skill development, visible thinking classrooms can help all learners grow and succeed.
