We all acknowledge that our goal as teachers is to help our students develop the dispositions for success. If they can learn how to be persistent, when and how to think flexibly, how to work interdependently and manage their impulsivity, we know that they will perform better at school and in life. Art Costa (Habits of Mind), referred to these and other Habits of Mind as “knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do”.

Whilst it is easy to recognise the worth of these Habits, many teachers and schools find it challenging to activate them in school culture and classroom teaching.

This workshop will give you what you need to know to start growing a whole school strategy as a Thinking School, with the Growth Mindset and Habits of Mind that develop intelligent behaviour.

This workshop is for heads and teachers from foundation phase to matric, who wish to more meaningfully develop behaviors that help teachers and students deal with challenges and problems in the classroom and in everyday life.
