Thinking Maps ┬« 

Today's inservice began with a rather good workshop on Thinking Maps®. This is a district-wide initiative, and looking at this I can see so many ways that I can use this in my classroom to help students organize their thinking processes. Some of the ideas are rather language-arts centered, but others can be used to great effect accros the curriculum. The presentation was well-designed and fortunately, the designated group that I had did not include the inservice whiners (although I got some of those when we broke into different subgroups for the jigsaw... even when I pointed out how some of the materials could be used in one teacher's subject area, and he agreed with the value, he chose to ignore it.
