Using Thinking Routines in Inquiry-Based Learning

Kishia Moore Fletcher is developing lessons and activities to integrate thinking routines into K-5 inquiry based science. Thinking routines help students develop their own tools that promote deep thinking within science so students can make connections, generate new ideas and possibilities, and activate prior knowledge. In collaboration with mentor Dr. Elaine Franklin, Western Carolina University, Kishia will provide a foundation for students to understand their own learning processes.
