Feb 21, 2017 - 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Breakthrough Magnet School, South 290 Brookfield Street Hartford, CT 06106
A growing body of research is finding that grit, self-control, and a growth mindset can have a strong influence on the academic achievement and emotional well-being of children and teens. Furthermore, these qualities have been found to be the “secret sauce” to their success. In this workshop, participants will learn the latest research on grit, self-control, growth mindset and “failing forward”, as well as strategies that promote these characteristics. Participants will learn how to bring these strategies to their own schools. Dr. Baruch-Feldman is the author of the upcoming book titled, The Grit Guide for Teens (July 2017).
