This online course is designed for the busy teacher who wants to improve their skills and knowlege of HOW TO successfully infuse Habits of Mind into classroom practice.
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.
