Visual Thinking Strategies - An Inquiry-based Strategy Teachers Can Use Every Day

Through support from New York Community Trust and Agnes Gund, any NYC-DOE teacher can learn and implement Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) for free during the 2018-2019 school year. VTS is a beloved inquiry-based teaching method backed by 20 years of research and practice and implemented in hundreds of schools and thousands of classrooms in NYC and around the world. VTS Basics with Philip Yenawine, a highly-interactive, video-rich course hosted on Watershed Collaborative’s state-of-the-art web platform, combines online and in-person professional learning experiences and makes it easy for individuals and teams of up to 25 teachers to learn, practice VTS in their classrooms, and reflect independently and as a community. Registration is open until the course launches on October 15, 2018. Download a project flier for additional information, check out the suggested course syllabus, or click here to register.
