An assignment requiring students to create a poster about a career of their choice. I have students present to a small group of students that are doing similar careers. Students then grade the presentations of their group members with the included rubric.
This provides two assignment options students can complete after learning about a few of the Habits of Mind. One is a group assignment and the other is individual. Both assignments require students to reflect on how the Habit of Mind can apply to different situations. The group assignment includes a
PowerPoint Presentation to introduce the Habits of Mind and look closely at Persisting, Striving for Accuracy, and Listening with Understanding and Empathy. Students learn about the Habits of Mind, do a little practice activity, and reflect on how the habit applies to their lives.
Mini unit for students to explore a career of their choice and learn about the Habits of Mind.
