I enjoyed reading your insights on think-alouds. As part of our writing program, we use think-alouds when we model our own writing. I use the document camera and project my writing on the Smartboard so students can see what I'm writing as I talk through my process out loud. After hearing my think-aloud, my students are often more inspired to write and know how to get their thinking started. I also use think aloud to share my connections and questions while reading aloud to my class. I have been using this strategy for years, and would like to better incorporate it into my math teaching.

I enjoyed reading about your experience in Bali and the connections that you made to learning in the US. I think "learning by doing" is universal. With so much emphasis on testing- authentic application is often overlooked. When I make learning hands-on and relevant my students are immediately captivated. I also use think-alouds to engage my first graders. It's a great tool to get them thinking at a deeper level and to encourage the use of higher order thinking skills. I even use think-alouds while teaching math and science. How do you use think-alouds? Are your students learning by doing? Do you use modeling in your classroom?
