Introduction

This course explores the 16 Habits of Mind as method to build intrinsic motivation among students grades K-4. The 16 Habits of Mind are a way of thinking or pedagogy according to Costa and Kallick. According to Costa and Kallick, employing Habits of Mind requires drawing forth certain patterns of intellectual behavior that produce powerful results. They are a composite of many skills, attitudes and proclivities including:


          Value: Choosing to employ a pattern of intellectual behavior rather than other, less productive patterns.
          Inclination: Feeling the tendency toward employing a pattern of intellectual behavior.
          Sensitivity: Perceiving opportunities for, and appropriateness of employing the pattern of behavior.

          Capability: Possessing the basic skills and capacities to carry through with the behavior.
          Commitment: Constantly striving to reflect on and improve performance of the pattern of intellectual behavior.

Additional researchers have divided the 16 Habits of Mind into the following categories:

          The habit of perspective
