Teaching Critical Thinking through Art, 1.2: Focal Point: Why start with See/Think/Wonder?

Lead course instructor Julie Carmean speaks with Shari Tishman, principal investigator on Artful Thinking at Project Zero in the Harvard Graduate School of Education, about why the See/Think/Wonder thinking routine is particularly impactful for developing strong thinking.  Shari explains that seeing, thinking, and wondering are “thinking moves” that students already know how to do—at least at the entry level—and are tremendously important, not just for looking at art, but for developing understanding in any discipline.
