How can we help our students with social and emotional learning as we concurrently build their academic mindset? Based on decades of implementation throughout the world, the Habits of Mind, a set of 16 dispositions for efficacious thinking, lift the lives of learners as it shifts a school’s culture. The Habits, when started in the early years, grow and become a compass for everyone in the school community to be thoughtful-full of thought and sensitive and caring.

Join us for a free webinar with Dr. Bena Kallick, one of the authors of Habits of Mind, curriculum expert, Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs. They will provide an engaging and practical presentation on how educators can weave together social and emotional learning with Habits of Mind that build a learner’s academic mindset.
