Artful Thinking Routines

Artful Thinking The Artful Thinking routines are fourteen short, flexible, easy and engaging strategies (questions, think-abouts) that use looking, listening and talking about art to promote academic speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. They were developed by Project Zero, a renowned educational research group at Harvard University along with Traverse City, Michigan Schools to help students develop critical thinking skills in a non-threatening and engaging atmosphere. They are ideal for jumpstarting your arts integration lesson and wonderful as quick writes. Explanation and instructions on how to use them can be found on the Artful Thinking website [here].
