   schema:description "In Habits of Mind, Melinda Fine explores the politics and practice of programs that foster moral thinking and civic responsibility, highlighting the acclaimed and controversial Facing History and Ourselves (FHAO) curriculum which uses study of the Holocaust to help students reflect on contemporary issues of racism, violence, intolerance, and prejudice. Combining thoughtful analyses of theoretical and policy debates with lively portraits of adolescents grappling with their differences in one multiracial middle school, Fine provides a discerning look at the issues at stake in educating for democracy. Habits of Mind offers valuable insights into ways that we might begin to understand and deal with our differences. Perhaps even more important, it argues convincingly that democratic principles demand we confront our differences and foster in students the capacity for informed moral choice."@en ;
