Description

Translate the Habits of Mind learning philosophy into practical classroom applications. Internationally acclaimed educators Karen Boyes and Graham Watts provide ideas, resources, examples and strategies that address each Habit of Mind and scaffold learning across all content areas. The action tool’s major sections follow five dimensions of growth that help students move from initial exploration to comprehensive internalisation of the habits, using them as intelligent behaviours for effective communication, decision making and problem solving. This series of more than 50 Habits of Mind tools helps secondary school teachers plan lessons and classroom activities for successful lifelong learning.
