Sharon Green—Fourth grade teacher—The Laurence School—Los Angeles, California

I have successfully used The Habits of Mind with my fourth graders. We stress character education at Laurence, and I have found the Habits of Mind to be great character-developing tools. I have also integrated the Habits of Mind with literature. Once the students are familiar with the meanings of each Habit, I instruct them to link specific Habits of Mind to characters in the novels we are reading. They are asked to evaluate a main character's behavior throughout the novel and to choose two or three Habits of Mind they believe that character is using. They must provide passages of text that support their choice and describe in their own words exactly how that character is using a particular Habit of Mind.

Foster critical thinking

Foster Critical Thinking

  • Encourage students to look at issues and situations from many points of view

  • Use language and questions that will trigger deeper thought

  • Give information to find a solution rather than telling the solution

  • Ask students to tell you about their own thinking

  • Use words such as compare, analyze, predict, classify, conclude, give evidence

  • Allow students to analyze a problem, decide what is needed, and then act

  • Let students see you trying new things, learning, growing, and thinking through problems

"The true test of character is...how we behave when we don't know what to do."John Holt


What is excellence

What is excellence?

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."Aristotle
