How do dispositions develop?

By routinely engaging in specific patterns of behavior – by doing certain things regularly

Page 15: Artful thinkingmc 2006v1

Thinking Routines

Short, easy-to-learn procedures that help students engage in thinking-dispositional behavior in and across the six areas of the palette

Gallery Walk

• In pairs, tour the documentation on the wall. Spend time carefully looking at one or two exhibits. Using the palette, find examples of student thinking.

What do you see? What do you think about that? What does it make you wonder?

• Share your findings with another pair.

Observing and Describing

This disposition is about noticing and communicating impressions. Routines in this area emphasize careful and deep observation, self-awareness, and detailed description.

Page 31: Artful thinkingmc 2006v1

Why call this disposition the disposition to Observe and describe? (Why include description?)

• In order to mobilize observations– to put them to work in the service of understanding – we have to describe them to ourselves.

• Often, description is the mechanism by which observation occurs. The act of describing something causes us to look closely, look again, and look anew.

Page 32: Artful thinkingmc 2006v1

Modes of observation--the faculties through which we receive impressions.

• The senses – eyes, ears, touch, etc. – give us physical impressions

• The intellect/mind – gives us mental impressions

• The heart/ spirit/ conscience – gives us emotional, ethical, spiritual impressions

Modes of description--the different forms in which we express our observations.

– Verbal– Written– Visual– Kinesthetic– Aural

How do observation and description happen -- Where do they take place?

Bumping up to the big

picture: Why connect

thinking and art?• Because of how works of art

make us think

• Because of what works of art make us think about

• AT encourages curricular connections along both of these dimensions

Page 36: Artful thinkingmc 2006v1

Many ways to make connections to the curriculum…

*Image: Sofonisba Anguissola, Three Sisters Playing Chess

• Encouraged by her singularly enlightened father, Sofonisba Anguissola (c. 1535-1625) was educated as a painter when the well-born young women of Renaissance Italy were consigned to sit in their palazzos and pursue needle work. Her accomplishments led to a life of drama and romance on a grand scale. She became a celebrated portrait painter at the court of Philip II of Spain.

• A grand love story unfolds, too, as she overcame many obstacles to win her beloved husband. She lived to a hearty old age, an international celebrity who had been praised by Michelangelo and lionized by painters across Europe

• 5 sisters, mother died young, wealthy family. Well respected artist, corresponded with Michaelangelo, prolific, went blind in old age
