    1. I read this as part of our school’s initiative. It should be looked at by all educators. Great ideas, I wish they gave more concrete examples on how to implement their hypothesis instead of giving generalizations. For example, giving actual examples of what an art class or math class would look like instead of saying “teachers need to think and plan creatively”.

    3. This book gives concrete examples of seamless instruction and implementation of student-centered learning combined with the Habits of Mind from real schools, teachers, and districts (mine included!).

    4. This book is wonderful for someone who wants to learn how to implement the Habits of the Mind in and Personalized Learning to their teaching style. I am fairly well versed in HOM and PL, but this book reinforced some notions that I had, correct misconceptions and gave new ideas for the coming school year. Worth the read!
