This empirical study examines the capacity of pupils´ gestures to mediate information and make processes of pupils´ thinking visible. The study understands pupils´ gestures as the visual processing of information or as thinking made visible. Based on an analysis of pupils´ gestures recorded during sixteen lessons of Czech language and literature at lower secondary schools, the study shows that pupils´ gestures appear in classes in the form of explanatory talks which the pupils use to (re)construct the patterns of their thinking. However, pupils´ gestures can not only highlight ongoing cognitive processes, but they also reveal the individual steps that comprise pupils´ cognitive operations. The study therefore introduces pupils´ gestures as a tool for making cognitive processes - their presence, content and structure - visible.
