1 Thinking Maps Objective: Saddleback staff will learn basic concepts about Thinking Maps

2 Thinking Maps Visual teaching tools that foster and encourage lifelong learning Tools correspond with eight fundamental thinking processes

3 What are Thinking Maps? Visual Patterns 8 cognitive skills

4 Brain Research Marzano Hyerles Cognitive Research Multiple Intelligence Theory

5 Why Thinking Maps? Researchers at Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) have identified nine instructional strategies that are most likely to improve student achievement across all content areas and across all grade levels. Classroom Instruction That Works,Classroom Instruction That Works, by Robert Marzano, Debra Pickering, and Jane Pollock.

6 Nine Instructional Strategies Comparing and Contrasting Classifying Seeing Analogies

7 Brain and Culture "...Individuals seek out stimulation that is consistent with their established internal structures, and ignore, forget, or attempt to actively discredit information that is consistent with these structures. Brain and Culture: Neurobiology, Ideology, and Social ChangeBrain and Culture: Neurobiology, Ideology, and Social Change, by Bruce Wexler

8 Multiple Intelligence Theory (Howard Gardner) Intrapersonal Intelligence …involving the capacity to understand oneself, to have an effective model of oneself, including desires, fears, and capacities - and to use such information effectively in regulating ones own life. "Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, by Howard Gardner

9 Multiple Intelligences (Howard Gardner) Interpersonal Intelligence To understand the intentions, motivations, and desires of other people and, consequently, to work effectively with others. "Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, by Howard Gardner

10 Thinking Foundation research on cognitive and critical thinking skills development at the pre-school, K-12 and college levels supporting research that investigates and facilitates change in public schools with great academic need. research that looks at the interdependency and interplay of culture, language, and cognition. http://www.thinkingfoundation.org/

11 Overview of Thinking Maps

12 The Circle Map Defining in Context

13 Respected among students Steve High School Teacher Mentor Army Reserve Disciplinarian Loves motorcycles Saddleback & Lathrop Teachers Saddleback Students Friendship Government Economics

14 Adding a Frame of Reference How do you know what you know about this topic? Did your information come from a specific source? Is this information being influenced by a specific point of view? Who could use this information? Why is this information important?

16 The Bubble Map Describing

17 The Double Bubble Map Comparing and Contrasting

18 Classifying The Tree Map

19 Whole to Parts The Brace Map

20 Sequencing The Flow Map

21 The Multi-Flow Map Cause and Effect

22 Seeing Analogies The Bridge Map

23 Graphic Organizers vs. Thinking Maps

24 Brain Research Marzano Hyerles Cognitive Research Multiple Intelligence Theory

25 Benefits Students learn more effectively and more efficiently Objectives are covered in less time with greater retention Thought processes are represented similarly throughout the curricula Schools promote integrated thinking and interdisciplinary learning Teachers can use TM as one more strategy to gauge student knowledge prior to a specific lesson Students gain effective tools to use across their academic careers
