Social–Emotional Thinking Routines for a World on the Move
Re-Imagining Migration is a collaborative between Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Project Zero and UCLA’s School of Education and Information Sciences. The organization seeks to ensure that young people grow up understanding migration as a shared condition of the past, present, and future in order to develop the knowledge, empathy, and mindsets that sustain inclusive and welcoming communities. The organization has introduced a new set of field-tested Project Zerothinking routines designed to foster the social–emotional, ethical, civic, and cognitive dispositions necessary to live and thrive in a world on the move in K–12 classrooms and beyond. A freely downloadable educator’s guidebuilds on Veronica Boix-Mansilla’s work on Global Thinking Routines at Project Zero. Along with Veronica Boix-Mansilla, Carola Suárez-Orozco (University of Massachusetts Boston and Co-founder Re-Imagining Migration) and Devon Wilson (Harvard Graduate School of Education, Project Zero) were foundational to the development of this resource.
