Discourse and Thinking for All Learners
Primary source learning routines are simple structures that guide student thinking and collaboration to promote learning from a text or other type of media. Because the learning routine is known and easy to remember, students can focus on asking questions, exchanging ideas, and building understanding rather than thinking about what they should be doing. Primary Source Learning Routines are easy to manage because they foster student independence. The routines make academic rigor fun for students, something they will look forward to doing in class.
