A nice starting point for thinking about the Habits of Mind, and some good material for supporting curriculum and Workshop specifically. Lots of platitudes and not very good examples, but also some insights of genius. I love some of the partner work material (simple but sounds effective) and love the 'interactive notebook' idea - again, simple but powerful. Overall too full of fluff, but some chapters are very good indeed.

Habits of Mind Across the Curriculum is a quick read with a powerful message. It reminds us about what is important about teaching kids. The habits have been around for a long time, but this book gives practical strategies as well as examples from real classroom using the habits in the classroom. This is a definite must read before beginning a new school year!

Interesting read for educators of all content areas .... This work takes the habits from the world of ideas and puts them to work in actual classrooms. How are teachers using them? Read to find out.
