Ron Ritchhart, leader of PZ’s ‘Cultures of Thinking’ project, has been a powerful advocate for educational practices that bring out the best in people, and creating places where thinking is valued, visible and actively promoted.

Harvard’s Project Zero has been at the forefront of education research for more than five decades. Director Daniel Wilson highlights some of its contributions and current lines of research.
