Today, we started off doing a quiz for the chapter "The Typewriter" on the book Out of Bounds on our computers. We were supposed to be prepared, with our homework and book on the table.
After completing the quiz, we were preparing ourselves to Skype with Bena Kallick, a private consultant providing services to school districts. We were supposed to have a document with questions to ask her during the interview.

There was a lot of good quality questions, and none of them were lame ones. Bena explained that we use our habits of mind everyday in our lifes. I think we were really organized, and nothing wrong happened during the interview. Her last question was: Are you curious about the habits of mind? We were really curious about that question. When the interview ended, we sented the questions documents for her, so she can think about it. We made a short debrief, of where to find the information of Bena's Skype call: This blog post, questions document, your brain, and others. With all the information, we made some connections and Ms. Tolisano explained and talked more about habits of mind. We created a list of some habits of mind and then Ms. Tolisano explained what was each habit. We came up that no one has all habits of mind. We can reflect with habits of mind and with that, we can have a better version of ourselves in our literature circle.
Here is a list of some of the habits of minds:
