Van Hoosen- Cultures of Thinking

Van Hoosen classrooms have been highly engaged in practicing visible thinking routines this year. As defined by the district Visible Thinking site, using visible thinking strategies allows students to collaboratively and/or independently "initiate, explore, discuss, document, and manage their thinking". Examples of visible thinking can be seen every day in our classrooms and hallways, where student thinking strategies are posted for all to see.

On April 23, Van Hoosen hosted a Cultures of Thinking Tour for teachers and administrators throughout Oakland County. These educators were invited into the classrooms to see visible thinking strategies at work. They also learned about technology that could enhance the application of visible thinking. It was a great day of learning, sharing, and collaborating for all involved!

 For more information about the event, you can read about it in the Cultures of Thinking blog post below.

Van Hoosen students enjoy working together in our new Atrium Learning Space. The space has been equipped with high top tables, chairs, and even a couch, making the atrium an innovative and inviting place to work and learn.
