Discover classroom-tested strategies, units, lessons, and tasks that help students learn good habits of mind and apply them in learning academic content. Help your school cultivate a more thoughtful culture that encourages students to reflect on their thinking and assess how well they’re using the habits of mind. Make the 16 habits of mind part of the everyday life in your school or district through your curriculum development, school leadership, and staff development. (ASCD book, 2008) 6″ x 9″, 420 pages.
