Succeeding with Habits of Mind

The Habits of Mind are one of the true classics in education. Derived by Art Costa and Bena Kallick, the Habits of Mind describe what the most efficacious learners do when confronted with problems, the solutions to which are not immediately apparent.

For more than 25 years, schools around the world have been working to improve student learning outcomes by infusing the Habits of Mind into their curriculum and classrooms. Over that time we have seen student learning outcomes improve and schools flourish as the Habits of Mind are adopted and lived throughout the school community.

To succeed with the Habits of Mind, we must shift from teaching about the Habits (and asking students to “use” them) to teaching for the Habits of Mind. We must also take action to ensure students explicitly develop and improve how they engage with the Habits.

In this course, we will go beyond the basics. We’ll ensure your work with the Habits of Mind has a significant and enduring impact on student learning outcomes. James Anderson shares his insights – from his own classroom experiences and his many years working with schools around the globe – to ensure you succeed with the Habits of Mind.
