This free course outlines some of the fascinating and important research that now underpins our understanding of how people acquire excellence, and ties it together with the Habits of Mind.
The course draws extensively on the research of Anders Erricson and Carol Dweck, and popular authors such as Daniel Coyle, Norman Doidge, Malcom Gladwell, and Daniel Pink.
An understanding, or at least an appreciation, of this work forms a sound basis for your classroom efforts with Habits of Mind. This course is referred to as the “Bonus” material in the first lesson of the “Secrets to Succeeding with Habits of Mind” course.
James Anderson has also written extensively about these ideas in his blog.
