Thinking is the foundation of all learning - be it in a Math, Science, Music or the PE classroom. While we often believe that thinking is a natural, innate process, research has demonstrated that our thinking ability can be strengthened and developed through purposeful, targeted instruction, and what is commonly known as 'thinking routines'.

This presentation models ways in which thinking routines can be used successfully in a PE classroom, in order to help students develop their analytical and critical thinking, which ultimately leads to improved physical performance and a healthy outlook on life. Thinking routines enhance students' physical performance while developing their understanding, their ability to make connections, and their problem-solving capacity.

Participants will be encouraged to use thinking routines throughout the presentation and to reflect on their own practice.
