    Our school system uses Habits of Minds in all of their classrooms and as a part of our staff development. I used the book, “The Ultimate Gift” with my students and had the students identify the habits in each chapter of the book. It was very easy for them. We were able to speak with the author, Jim Stovall and asked him if he knew about the Habits of Minds and he told us that he did and used them every day in his life and thought about them as he wrote his book. He was very pleased that our 5th grade classroom was also using them in our life and lessons. Keep creating creative opportunities for students, teachers and families!

    Attended your seminar on Tuesday. It’s really got me thinking how to fine tune my feedback to develop my students’ thinking to help them progress and set goals. Thanks so much James.

    High quality Spanish materials are valuable and rare. Sharing this information with my seventy-one 5th grade Spanish Immersion students will create a life changing experience in the way they approach their learning and see themselves.
