Last week I had the pleasure of returning to Rivers International School, Arnhem to share in the theme of engaging children in metacognition. We enjoyed an exploration of Project Zero’s Thinking Routines- what routines work well with what subjects and with what age of children.
We enhanced our thinking by considering “Concept Stretchers” and how we can look at concepts such as resilience, pollution, responsibility and what this means to be “necessary and sufficient” to understand these big ideas!
Thank you, Rivers’ teachers, for stretching my thinking and sharing with an open heart and an open mind!
Hope you have had a wonderful summer vacation and feel suitably rested, recharged and revitalised for the new school year.
