This extensive10 week online course, starting March 3rd, is a powerful and economical way to extend your understandings of the Habits of Mind.
The original course was designed by Art Costa and Bena Kallick and has been extended and enhanced by our own James Anderson to make it more school and classroom focused.
Teacher and School Friendly
The course is divided into 10 easily digestible topics each designed to take up only about 1 - 1.5 hours of your busy time.
Each topic is supported by a range of carefully selected learning resources. There are many short videos of Art Costa and Bena Kallick sharing their wisdom and these are extended and applied to practical school and classroom applications by James Anderson through the use of video, recorded webinars, and prezi's.
You can jump in and out of the course around your busy schedule. There are no specific times when you are required to be online.
Participants are encouraged to move through the course at a regular rate, and complete over 10 weeks, however we recognise this is not always possible so the course remains open and facilitated for 14 weeks, and all resources are available to participants for a full 12 months!
Each week there is a short, focused discussion that allows participants to share their insights and classroom applications or to ask questions.
For those wanting more, the course provides links to additional resources and further reading to extend and enhance your learning.
James Anderson is the creator of this Habits of Mind site, our lead blogger and regularly runs school based workshops around the world. The richness and practical school and classroom insights he brings to this course greatly enhances it's effectiveness. James makes himself available to respond to questions, lead discussion and it is possible to arrange group webinars to support your learning - especially where there is a group from your school participating in the course.
Although you can choose to work your way through the course materials on your own, James is there every step of the way to support your learning with years of practical school experience.
