Look for Patterns
Take Apart & Put Back Together
Conjecture and Test
Describe and Articulate
Seek Why and Prove
Be Confident, Patient, and Persistent
Collaborate and Listen

I have been toying with a feedback system for each that would look something like this:
1. Is this a good list of habits? Are there ones that I am missing? Are there ones that are unnecessary?
2. Suggestions for feedback systems? I hate to bring it up…but should this translate to a grade?
3. How can we rename the habits in a way that is more student friendly?
