Title: CTR: DISCOVERING & EXPLORING HABITS OF THE MIND
Description:
In this book Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick define and describe 16 types of intelligent behavior that they call "habits of mind." These habits of mind can aid both students and adults in school and in everyday life as they encounters problems, dilemmas, and enigmas, the resolutions of which are not immediately apparent. The habits are rooted in a modern view of intelligence that casts off traditional abilities-centered theories. This is the first of a four-book series. Subsequent volumes explore instructional strategies for teaching the habits at school and at home; assessment of the habits; and description from schools, teachers, and administrators about how they have incorporated the habits of mind into their work. 108 pages
