The year is quickly coming to an end for us. For me, this is always a time of reflection and comprehension of the things that I’ve learned in my class over the last 3 months of classes and experiences that I have had. Something new to me this semester is the idea of the habits of mind. I was doing a study away program last semester when the habits of mind were beginning to be introduced at Plymouth State, so I spent a lot of time learning about the habits of mind and trying to connect what I do in my classes to these habits of mind.
This class has been a catalyst to me learning and understanding how I can implement each of the habits of mind into my personal and professional development. Each habit of mind has had a unique and powerful impact on my learning during this semester. They have made it clear to me what I am learning and how I will be able to bring that knowledge with me into the future and be able to successfully apply it. The signposts that go along with these habits of mind have been useful to me so I am able to recognize the different elements and learning goals associated with each habit of mind.
I am going to take a moment to reflect on each habit of mind and the corresponding signposts that I have practiced during this course and the creation of our journey map project.
