The Habits of Mind framework describes and offers strategies for building 16 habits of mind with self-assessment rubrics and other resources contributed by practitioners.
Skills addressed: Resilience, Self-control, Empathy, Problem Solving, Written Communication, Creative Thinking, Teamwork, Lifelong Learning
The Habits of Mind Institute was established 30 years ago by educators who were writing and learning about behaviors that encourage problem solving in learners. They furthered their work, bringing alternative assessment, group dynamics, and personalized learning into the schema. The two founders, Bena Kallick and Art Costa, are educators, authors of many books, and recipients of the Malcolm Knowles Award for Self-Directed Learning from the International Society of Self-Directed Learning. Schools, consultants, and individual practitioners can become certified in Habits of Mind with support from mentor schools and other consultants. The website posts research related to their Habits of Mind framework.
