By DarrellHabits of Mind:
- Persistence: Do you stick to the task at hand and follow through, are you able to remain focused?
- Manage impulsiveness: Do you think before speaking or questioning, do you take time to consider your options when you approach challenges?
- Flexible Thinking: Are you able to change perspective; Do you consider the input of others; Do you generate alternatives and consider the options you have?
- Strive for Accuracy: Checking for errors is important. Do you do this before requesting help? Do you have the desire to be precise; are you committed and do you strive for quality?
- Questioning and Posing Problems: Is it customary for you to ask yourself, “How do I know?”; Do you consider what information is needed, choose strategies to get the information, and overcome obstacles?
- As you reflect on this trimesters work, which of the Habits of Mind (listed and defined above) were you most aware of in your own learnings? Definitely Applying Past Knowledge to New Situations. In most if not all of my projects I used skills I had learned in previous projects.
Metacognition is self-awareness of your thoughts, feelings, intentions and actions.What metacognitive strategies did you use to monitor your performance and task completion this trimester? I don’t think that I did.
- Referring to the bulleted list above, which Habit of Mind will you focus on as you begin your next project? Flexible Thinking, that way maybe I won’t get yelled at for not texturing, doing stuff, etc.
Will you practice it in another course? Maybe.
How? Listen to others?
- As you think about your future, how might these Habits of Mind be used as a guide in your life? I don’t think of my future and I think that it’s ridiculous to try to live by such an arbitrary list of things.
- Do you embrace creating, imagining, and innovating? Do you regularly propose new ideas and strive for originality? Explain I do embrace it but I don’t regularly propose new ideas. I prefer to keep at what I know I can do before I move onto something else.
