Stephanie Harvey: Teaching Students to Recognize the Power in Their Own Thinking


Can we teach students to think? Stephanie Harvey says students are born thinking. It’s not about teaching students to think—it’s about teaching students to be aware of their thinking, teaching them to think strategically, and perhaps above all, it’s about teaching students to recognize the power in their own thinking. 

In this video Stephanie talks about why we need to teach students to think strategically, and to develop students who are confident problem solvers.
