Habits Of Mind

We use the term “Habits of Mind” to mean having a disposition toward behaving intelligently when confronted with problems to which we do not immediately know the answers.

These Habits of Mind may serve as mental disciplines. When confronted with problematic situations, students, parents, and teachers might habitually employ one or more of these Habits of Mind by asking themselves, “What is the most intelligent thing I can do right now?”

  • How can I learn from this?
  • What are my resources?
  • How can I approach this problem flexibly?
  • How can I draw upon my repertoire of problem-solving strategies?

New Year's resolutions fail

80% of New Year’s resolutions are broken within two months.
