Philip Yenawine's, VTS Co-founder, latest book explores how VTS can be easily and effectively integrated into elementary classroom lessons in just ten hours of a school year. The result is a learner-centered environment and rich, absorbing discussions. Now available for purchase.
"To read Visual Thinking Strategies is to enter into a companionable and substantive conversation with a master teacher who has spent a lifetime noticing and caring about how children learn. Those grappling with the Common Core Standards will find Yenawine’s ideas timely; in fact, they are timeless." -Wendy Lukehart, Youth Collections Coordinator at the D.C. Public Library
ANNOUNCING THE 2ND ANNUAL VTS SUMMER INSTITUTE!
We are excited and proud to announce that the 2nd Annual VTS Summer Institute is taking place at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art on July 23-26, 2014!
This years' Institute will focus on VTS and the Common Core State Standards. We will offer hands-on workshops to develop essential skills needed to support the kind of shifts outlined by CCSS. We will also emphasize the sharing of experience from the VTS community - hearing and learning from a variety of experienced VTS practitioners from across the country, addressing a wide range of student and teacher needs.
