Teaching Habits and Attitudes for 21st Century Learning



Habitudes ( a compound name made up of habits and attitudes) are ” daily disciplined decisions that successful learners choose to make and a specific attitude that demonstrates a new mindset and way of thinking about the world and one’s place in it.” The seven  habitudes angels defines in this book include:

  1. imagination
  2. Curiosity
  3. Self-awareness
  4. Courage
  5. Adaptability
  6. Perseverance
  7. Passion

Angela argues that these seven  habitudes are essential for effective learning to take place. She further dubs them important behaviours for improving student’s performance in school and beyond school.

Classroom Habitudes contains nine chapters, eight define the habitudes and describe activities for teaching them, and one offers some final thoughts about the concepts. Each chapter is organized in service of the to-be concept and provides guidance for your modelling, demonstrating, and supporting students’ practice as the learners and leaders I know they cam become with your guidance. The appendices prove additional resources, direction for creating and using the habitudes notebook, and a tool for assessing students’ understanding of the habitudes before and after their study.
