"Habits of Mind"

"Habits of Mind" - discover 16 thinking dispositions that can assist you and your students be more effective learners.
Presented by Maxine Driscoll
"Habits of Mind" is based on years of research and work by Professor Art Costa, a renowned American educator. Habits of Mind can be utilized in any K-12 classroom and also used at a personal level to improve the way we think, learn and act. Critical thinking, metacognition and reflection feature very highly in the 16 Habits. There is a direct correlation with many of the 16 Habits and the IB Philosophy.
