Discover the 16 Habits of Mind and how they best fit into your learning and life beyond the classroom. While watching this video you will be able to see the true importance of habits and their ability to overcome obstacles in life.
As teachers, we can encourage autonomous learning through habits of mind. Everything from what it looks, sounds, and feels like. Guiding students to discover Habits of Mind – along with connections to ownership of their learning – increases success far beyond the classroom.
Remember, you don’t need to introduce all of the Habits at the same time. You can choose a few and help them get started.
