Discovering & Exploring Habits of Mind. A Developmental Series, Book 1.
Costa, Arthur L., Ed.; Kallick, Bena, Ed.
This book, the first in a series of four, presents a collection of articles focusing on intelligent behaviors called habits of mind. These habits of mind can aid both students and adults in school and daily life as they encounter problems, 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. The book begins with "Series Foreword: Thinking on the Road of Life" (David Perkins); "Preface to the Series" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); and "Preface to Book 1" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick). The seven chapters are: (1) "Changing Perspectives About Intelligence" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (2) "Describing the Habits of Mind" (Arthur L. Costa); (3) "Why Teach Habits of Mind?" (Shari Tishman); (4) "Habits of Mind in the Curriculum" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (5) "The Work Ethic and the Habits of Mind" (Marian Leibowitz); (6) "The Impact of Habits of Mind" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); and (7) "Recommendations for Getting Started" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick). (Each chapter contains references.) (SM)
