Support Student Thinking

  • In order to support student thinking and help Council Rock students become expert problem-solvers, we have studied, practiced, and taught students about the 16 Habits of Mind identified by Dr. Art Costa and Dr. Bena Kallick. These 16 thinking dispositions are used by intelligent people when facing problems that do not have easy, quick answers. On June 19, 2019, Bena Kallick visited Council Rock and presented our school with the International Habits of Mind Learning Community of Excellence award. We have also studied Growth Mindset as identified by Carol Dweck. Families can support these learning dispositions at home, too, and we welcome your partnership! Check out the tabs on the left side of the screen to learn more about Habits of Mind and Growth Mindset.
