Project Zero offers educators research-based solutions for creating cultures of thinking by utilizing the eight cultural forces of opportunities, time, modeling, language, environment, interactions, routines, and expectations. Through the use of effective questioning, listening, documentation, and facilitative structures called thinking routines, thinking can be made visible across all subject areas and grade levels. These routines, designed by researchers at Harvard’s Project Zero, scaffold and support one’s thinking. By applying these processes, thinking becomes visible as learners’ ideas are expressed, discussed, and reflected upon.
