Redefining the art of learning

We teachers have joined together to stretch our comfort levels and expand our expertise by employing artistic media to foster higher-order thinking and understanding in science content. In our classrooms, learning is centered around a growth mindset and the habits of mind that allow students to develop: persistence, listening with understanding, questioning, and communicating with precision and accuracy. Participants are taught to constructively critique and craft their products and performances as an infinite process. The team uses phrases such as, “I notice that…” and, “I wonder what would happen if…” with each other and students, with a goal of providing additional information and building on what the students have already mastered, rather than destroying what they’ve created by implying that it is lacking and suggesting a need to start over.
