May session was a success. Due to it, we opened now a third session in October and we still have some spaces available for it.
If you want to learn about strategies to promote thinking and make it visible in your classroom, If you want to see the theory in action and observe how teachers and children are working together using specific strategies to make thinking visible, if you want to have an action plan to implement new strategies at your classroom, this is the instotute you need.
