Visible Thinking in Early Childhood

Visible Thinking South Florida is a Florida International University community engagement initiative integrated by pre-service teachers, graduate students, alumni and early childhood practitioners from over 20 schools from Miami-Dade and Broward counties. It came together in 2006 under the leadership of Dr. Angela K. Salmon with a few of her early childhood students who were interested in creating cultures of thinking in their early childhood classrooms through action research.
