Habits of Mind 2: Activating and Engaging



After years of focusing exclusively on academic standards, bringing the Habits of Mind to life in your classroom may require a slight shift on your part–moving from objectives and directions to modeling and discovering new ways of engaging today’s learners. The habits of Learning Continuously, Questioning and Posing Problems, and Thinking and Communicating with Clarity and Precision will not only promote the academic success of your students, but help them condition their own minds to embrace “always on,” self-directed learning.

Learning Path Outcomes: 
  • Examine the skill of listening with understanding and empathy.
  • Recognize the importance of investing in the ideas of others.
  • Develop strategies for managing impulsivity.
  • Learn the skill of persistence when faced with a challenging problem.
