Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is a powerful and exciting student-centred teaching methodology co-developed by cognitive psychologist Abigail Housen and veteran museum educator Philip Yenawine. In monthly (or more) lessons VTS has been proven to strengthen students’ oral communications, literacy and creative and analytical skills among students of all ages. VTS uses facilitated discussion to practice respectful, democratic, collaborative problem-solving among students, which transfers to other classroom interactions and beyond.
Please see the Incinerator Eventbrite link to see dates for upcoming introductory and experienced VTS professional development workshops with experienced facilitator and trainer Christine Healey. See also http://www.incineratorgallery.com/education
