“Perspective Taking” Harvard Project Zero Thinking Routines with Abby Krolik and Addie Gayoso
Harvard Project Zero Thinking Routines are highly-adaptable strategies that extend and deepen students' critical thinking and become a part of the fabric of everyday learning. This session will introduce some routines that help build perspective-taking skills through discussions about works in the museum's collections and facilitated reflections.
