Mindful by Design welcomes you to our Habits of Mind site!
This site is designed by Mindful by Design to support, schools, businesses and interest from the wider community in Habits of Mind.
The site's designer and developer is James Anderson, James is the Director of Mindful by Design and an Affiliate Director of the Institute for Habits of Mind. This site is how James strives to meet the mission of the Institute for Habits of Mind to transform schools into learning communities where Habits of Mind are taught, practiced, valued and infused into the culture
The Habits of Mind Expo and Mindfulness by Design events will be offered ONLINE in 2014.
Showcasing the work of dozens of exemplary Habits of Mind schools, the Habits of Mind Expo gives you insight into best practice to help you infuse and sustain the Habits of Mind in your school. Recorded presentations by Art Costa, James Anderson and many school leaders, classroom teachers, parents and students give added insight into the successes of these remarkable schools. Stay tuned as more contributors, special presentations and online exhibits are announced.
For those new to the Habits of Mind, this two day workshop will give you the foundations you need to succeed.
For those already familiar with the Habits of Mind, and wondering how to move beyond the introduction, posters and language of the Habits, this workshop will show you how to sustain the Habits in meaningful ways, and avoid the “we've already done the Habits of Mind” syndrome.
