Teach students to think for themselves. The Habit of Thought describes the theory, practice, and vision of Socratic Practice, a novel and increasingly widespread approach to classroom instruction. In this series of thought-provoking essays, Strong argues that Socratic Practice fosters a culture of learning in the classroom and ultimately helps young people to become mature independent thinkers. The issues discussed range from the philosophical (intellectual dialogue and integrity) to the practical (classroom models and evaluation rubrics). This book is an essential resource for educators seeking to prepare their students for the challenges of the 21st century.
