Succeeding with Habits of Mind in your Classroom – Brisbane

In this powerful new workshop, I share the key understandings you’ll need in order to succeed with Habits of Mind in your classroom.

With more than 20 years experience working with the Habits of Mind, both in my own classroom as an international affiliate director for Art Costa and Bena Kallick’s Insitute for Habits of Mind, I know what works – and I know what doesn’t. This workshop cuts through the noise to give you the tools you need to make profound changes to the learning outcomes of your students.

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Strategies and activities that introduce students to the Habits of Mind.
  • How to make the important shift from “using” the Habits of Mind to “improving” students’ Habits of Mind.
  • The truth about how Habits of Mind improve learning outcomes
  • How to develop rubrics to assess the growth of the Habits of Mind.
  • Where the Habits “fit” in the curriculum.
  • How to make the Habits of Mind learning outcomes rather than learning tools.
  • How to shape your curriculum and pedagogy to develop increasingly powerful Habits of Mind.
  • How the Habits of Mind help students get out of the Learning Pit.
  • How the Habits ensure students’ ability to engage in Effective Effort.
  • The key lessons for a whole-school approach to the Habits of Mind.
  • Much more …

All teachers who attend this workshop will receive a copy of my book Succeeding with Habits of Mind, as well as extensive resources to support their work at school.
