Problem-Resolving Map, not Problem-Solving Map

In the next weeks, we will be focusing on the third Cognitive Coaching<sup>SM</sup> map: the Problem-Resolving map. In the older versions of their work, Costa and Garmston referred to this as the Problem-Solving map. More recently they have adopted the newer name. Consider why you think this change was made.

Review the Problem-Resolving Map in your Learning Guide.  How is this map more productive than other problem solving models you might have learned?  This week revisit the map by listening for existing states and desired states in the conversations you have.
