Cultures of thinking are places in which a group’s collective as well as individual thinking is valued, visible and actively promoted as part of the regular day to day experience of all group members.We applied this to our schools to ask how we could move away from simply using thinking routines, and move towards "thinking that's routine". We thought about how a classroom's story gets told - what are we doing to foster this culture? Again we considered the forces that shape a culture in the classroom: routines and structures, time, opportunities, modeling, interactions and language. And we came away with a question: If I want to encourage thinking - what I am doing to get the culture into place?
