C.H.A.N.G.E. - Habits of Minds

“One’s intelligence is the sum of one’s habits of mind.” 
 Lauren B. Resnick, 2001

The six Yuhua Habits of Mind (HOM), C.H.A.N.G.E., serve to provide Yuhuans with the dispositions that shape effective inquiry when confronted with uncertainties and dilemmas and encourage independent learning.

 Adapted from the 16 dispositions that are characteristic of skillful, efficacious problem-solvers in many walks of life (Costa & Kallick, 2009), the understanding and application of the Habits of Mind promote strategic reasoning, insightfulness, perseverance, creativity and craftsmanship and will equip Yuhuans with the skills necessary for success in learning and in life.
