Chapter 7. Habits of Mind as Character Education

by Curtis Schnorr

In recent years, schools have been challenged to teach character education, which encompasses moral values and good citizenship. This charge sent many districts searching for programs to implement their state and local mandates. Though they found a variety of options to meet their needs, I believe their search should have started—and ended—with the Habits of Mind.

Some may ask: Why should thinking be the foundation for a character education program? I have a better question: Why shouldn't thinking be the foundation? Successful character education is grounded in thoughtful processes. Schools need to develop climates that support and foster these thinking processes, just as they support development of students who are productive citizens with strong character. The Habits of Mind can help achieve all these goals.
