Research shows that beliefs about intelligence and ability impact one’s performance and response to failure. Join us for this 90 minute webinar to learn more about what research says, how to examine and change your own mindset, and what you can do to help support children’s growth mindset and persistence through challenge.

The Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit is a suite of research-backed resources created for librarians to help families prepare children ages 0 to 8 for success in school and in life. The toolkit was developed by the Center for Childhood Creativity at the Bay Area Discovery Museum in collaboration with the California State Library. This 4-part series of webinars will introduce librarians to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in the toolkit, which is available in its entirety for free online. You can find the toolkit at this link.

This webinar series is sponsored by the California State Library in order to provide a free professional development resource for any and all library staff in California and to any interested library staff anywhere.
