Habits of Mind are a repertoire of behaviors that help students navigate the various challenges and problems they encounter in the classroom and everyday life. The habits are an essential element for students' success in school and beyond.
Use this group to share your practices, ask questions, and offer suggestions.
Bena_Kallick, 3 years ago| FlagIt is good to get started early in the school year--much
like you do with classroom management . I am assuming that you have one of our books so that you know what the habits are and how they fit into the curriculum (ASCD books--Lea rning and Leading with Habits of Mind or Habits of Mind Across the Curriculum ). There are two other terrific resources for activities for Habits of Mind--tool kits published by ASCD authored by Karen Boyes and Graham Watts--one for elementary and one for secondary.
go to www.instit

Robin_Ruiz, 3 years ago| FlagHello, My name is Robin Ruiz. I am looking forward to collaborat
ing with the group that belongs to Institute for Habits of the Mind. The habits we promote in our classrooms , at our schools and with the school community relate to the climate of the school. Does your school truly promote student acheivemen t? Wouldn't that mean the students are hungry to learn? Robin Ruiz

Has anyone offered a separate course for students that focuses on habits of mind? Bena
