Thinking Maps

Cleary School for the Deaf began using Thinking Maps approximately 5 years ago. Thinking Maps are a shared visual language for learning. They are used across all grade levels and content areas to build the critical thinking, problem solving, comprehension and communication skills necessary for academic success.

 Our teachers and support staff find them helpful in building students’ skills. We are proud of their use and how they help to support student learning. Here are some examples of how they are being used.
