Habits of Mind and Leanership

Learnership is the skill of learning. By developing Learnership we help students gain more out of every learning opportunity, and we increase the agency they have in the world. 

The Habits of Mind are one of the 5 essential elements of Learnership. They provide learners with a rich language for learning. One that is shared throughout a learning community with teachers, parents and peers. 

Moreover the Habits of Mind describe the dispositions students need to employ when they are in their Learning  Zone, helping them succeed at increasingly difficult problems.
