Additional Details for the Exploring Viewpoints Routine

Artful Thinking Routines Anchor Chart with Exploring Viewpoints

Artful Thinking is a set of our routines from Project Zero which are meant to help students think creatively and critically through habits of deep observation, analysis, and questioning.  These routines are designed to be easy to remember and help students take action in and out of the classroom. They offer a wide range of applications and are split into a set of 6 themes: Comparing & Connecting, Exploring Viewpoints, Finding Complexity, Observing and Describing, Questioning and Investigating, and Reasoning.

In this preview, Susan Riley shares 2 routines from the Exploring Viewpoints theme: Step Inside and The Complexity Scale. You’ll also be provided with an extension for Step Inside which can be used both face-to-face and in virtual environments.

This workshop preview is part of our members-only Accelerator workshops. Each month, we release a stack of videos and worksheets to help educators bring inspiring new techniques into their classrooms. Each workshop also provides teachers with a certificate for 1 PD hour.
