Thinking Maps

St. Francis de Sales has used Thinking Map tools for many years. The Thinking Maps, developed by Dr. David Hyerle, are visual, brain-friendly tools that foster and encourage life-long learning. Based on thorough and well-accepted academic study and research, these visual maps provide students with patterns for using the eight fundamental thinking processes.
 These Maps are used in all content areas as the teachers and students work to expand their thinking skills. We invite you to familiarize yourself with each Map. Ask your child to tell you about the Thinking Maps. Expect to see them in your child’s work and in the classrooms as you visit throughout the year.
