Ron Ritchhart’s newest book, Creating Cultures of Thinking: The 8 Forces We Must Master to Truly Transform Our Schools, is now available to purchase! http://www.amazon.com/Creating-Cultures-Thinking-Transform-Schools/dp/1118974603/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1425922457&sr=1-1&keywords=ron+ritchhart . In the book, Ritchhart includes a section about our very own Erika Lusky (and Julie Rains, from West) on Enbrighten®, an approach they created.
If you didn’t have a chance to read the article What Are Thinking Skills at the March 3 PD, ask for a copy. This article provides great examples of how to incorporate many of the cultural forces into your own classroom.
