The Habits of Mind don't readily lend themselves to instructional "recipes." Still, many educators have developed strategies for teaching the Habits of Mind directly, from building students' awareness of them to instructing children specifically on each habit. These educators share some of their strategies in this chapter. Though their processes and methods differ, all of their work has a common strain: effective teachers are always alert for and seize opportunities to engage, reinforce, illuminate, and practice the Habits of Mind.
