This is the fourth volume in a series describing 16 types of intelligent behavior called habits of mind.

After "Series Foreword: Thinking on the Road of Life" (David Perkins), "Preface to the Series" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick), and "Preface to Book 4" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick), the seven papers are: (1) "Building Learning Organizations" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (2) "Constructing a Home for the Mind" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (3) "Bringing to Life a Vision" (Curtis Schnorr and Thommie DePinto Piercy); (4) "Infusing the Habits of Mind into a School Culture" (Deborah Hansen); (5) "Sharing a Wealth of Knowledge and Experience" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (6) "Sustaining a Focus on the Habits of Mind" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); and (7) "Getting Started" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick).
