The real “HOW TO” of the Habits of Mind
The Habits of Mind are one of the true classics in education. In this new workshop you’ll lean the strategies you need in order to succeed with Habits of Mind in your classroom.
The Tipping Point
The critical shift with Habits of Mind comes as you move from teaching “about” the Habits of Mind to teaching “for” the Habits of Mind. It occurs as you move from asking your students to “use” the Habits of Mind, to asking yourself how your pedagogy helps students “improve” their Habits of Mind.
In this workshop we unpack how to teach so that students go beyond merely knowing the names of the Habits of Mind, and putting posters on the walls, to learning how to engage in the Habits in increasingly sophisticated and effective ways.
You’ll learn how developing Habits of Mind is the key to making hard things easy, and turning ineffective effort into effective effort.
Assessing and Developing Habits of Mind
This workshop gives you exclusive access to the Habits of Mind Profile Tool. This brand new online tool allows you to take a snap shot of your student’s Habits of Mind – making these “invisible” dispositions, visible and real to them.
You’ll learn how to use the profile tool to help your students assess their Habits of Mind, set goals for improvement , monitor their growth and see the outcomes of their efforts.
This powerful new tool will change the way you work with the Habits of Mind forever.
Ongoing support and bonus resources
I believe that teacher professional learning requires ongoing support and the opportunity to revisit, reflect on and extend your learning. So I’ve included 12 months access to the “Succeeding with Habits of Mind” online course as part of your registration (valued at $250). You’ll gain access to extensive resources to continue your learning beyond the workshop as well as the ability to ask questions and be supported as you implement these ideas in your classroom.
Difficulty registering? Some schools have noted that they are unable to complete registration to these workshops. We are working on the problem. If you encounter difficulties, please email the names and email addresses of your team to firstname.lastname@example.org
