Creative ways to make Collaboration, Persistence, Discipline, Inquisitiveness, and Imagination feel real to students.
Explore creative strategies for making the Five Habits of Learning―Collaboration, Persistence, Discipline, Inquisitiveness, and Imagination―come alive in early childhood, primary and secondary school settings.
These strategies not only make the Habits more ‘concrete’ for students, but also encourage more familiarity and ease around the language used to express feelings about thinking and personal achievement.
Ideal for teachers and school leaders interested in Cross-Curriculum Priorities, Capabilities, and Whole School Improvement. AITSL Standard 1: Know students and how they learn.
Seeing the curriculum through a different lens has been the most rewarding part of this whole experience. I have loved watching my students start using the 5 Habits of Learning language when talking about their learning experiences and how this has filtered into other learning areas and lessons I teach as well.
I realised Creative Schools helped me deepen habits of learning in the children, letting the children find themselves and their creativity. It broke down cliques in the class. The habits of learning grew like a plant every week in the class and I had to let go and stand back.
