AVAILABLE FOR ALL GRADE LEVELS
The materials available at Thinking Zone have been tested in classrooms and across grade levels—from grade school through college.
While many of them are targeted for high school and post-secondary audiences, minor adaptations on the teacher’s part will make them workable across grade levels. If you don’t see something you’d like, tell us, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you, designing products tailored to your specific needs! While it is said that money can’t buy time, at Thinking Zone your money can buy products that save you time.
At Thinking Zone we believe that learning should be more than an exercise in remembering and repeating information; learning should be about taking on challenges and seeking answers. We also understand that learning and thinking are messy business.
Using Thinking Zone products, students will come to understand that their intelligence can be developed and doesn’t depend on luck or genetics. Thinking Zone activities will exercise their brains, which like a muscle, will grow stronger. As they develop their brains, they will come to accept that mistakes and confusion will litter the path. Instead of worrying about how smart they currently are, students work to improve by embracing challenges, persisting in the face of setbacks, and seeing effort as a path to mastery.
