Chapter 4. Practical Processes for Teaching Habits of Mind

by Alan Cooper and Georgette Jenson

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.
—Will Rogers

This chapter presents practical, straightforward processes that have been tested and used in real classroom situations. It describes various actions for implementing the Habits of Mind in the classroom and thereby preparing students for lifelong learning. The actions should not, however, be seen as either prescriptive or definitive. They are starting points. None of them guarantees instant success. Success in implementing the Habits of Mind will be incremental and sequential over time, always dependent upon the professional skill of the individual teachers in increasing their capacities and capabilities—developing their intrapersonal intelligence. Equally important is the collaboration with and the synergy of collegial support from other teachers, support staff, administrators, parents, and the students themselves. We suggest starting with the actions listed in Figure 4.1; they also serve as the structure of this chapter.
