Habits of mind are the critical life skills that students need to be successful in school and life. Participants will learn practical strategies to help students at all grade levels learn how to face challenges in school and at home. This workshop focuses on learning the 16 characteristics for success in school and life. These tools will support social and emotional development (communicating effectively, self- regulation, listening with empathy) as well as academic skills (persistence, independent thinking, taking academic risks). Participants will engage in interactive activities that support the integration of these techniques into their existing curriculum. Video vignettes will be viewed to identify best practices, and teams will walk away with a plan for setting up a classroom environment that supports the habits of mind.
