Chapters International is thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for educators,
happening in beautiful California on 5th & 6th April 2024.
When Art Costa and Bena Kallick framed the Habits of Mind over 30 years ago, they were energized by the enthusiastic response to the work and the immediate applications both within and beyond school classrooms. This intimate conference is designed to showcase some of the amazing work that has been done with the 16 Habits of Mind in the field, giving voice to consultants and school practitioners as they describe how it strengthens a compassionate and thoughtful culture of kindness and joy in the pursuit of academic success. As we bring together people from around the world, we strengthen commitment to our mission: Educating for a more thoughtful world.
