Dispositions

Reframing Teaching and Learning

Arthur L. Costa,

Dispositions: Reframing Teaching and Learning
 
 

From the authors of the best-selling Habits of Mind

A costly gap exists between what we claim to value as educational essentials and how we evaluate results. In Dispositions, Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick present a game-changing look at why and how to "mind the gap".

The authors’ Habits of Mind writings have influenced educational policy worldwide. Dispositions incorporates new cognitive science that shows how influencing students’ mental habits is their key to finding meaning in classroom content. Topics include:

  • Making dispositions come alive in the minds of students
  • Shifting the thinking of educational leaders, parents, politicians and the public
  • How to align day-to-day classroom practices with larger dispositional outcomes

Featuring techniques for integrating dispositional learning into the Common Core, Dispositions is Costa and Kallick’s most indispensable work on 21st Century learning.

"Education must include the development of the human elements in our children. Costa and Kallick present a reasonable, practical and positive alternative—the cultivation of dispositional thinking, the very core of being human."
