Development of learners' attitudestowardthinking and learning andtheiralertnesstoopportunitiesforthinking and learning (the "dispositional"side of thinking).
A shift in classroom culture toward a community of enthusiasticallyengagedthinkers and learners.As we can infer about these goal is that visible thinking tries to activate the thinkingability by practicing different routines that is develop in the classroom and lead by theteacher respecting the institutional objectives and the lesson plan.The idea of all that is to make students active and emphasize in the achievement anduse of the ideals mentioned before (Understanding, Truth, Fairness and Creativity)No matter if the topic is science, mathematics, literature or history, the essential partis that they have a clear idea about what they are talking about one each other.
