This 4-part series of webinars, offered through Infopeople, was created to introduce librarians to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in the toolkit.
Please note that the Toolkit resources have been updated and expanded since the creation of these webinars. Although the specific toolkit references may differ, the research-backed tips and content remain relevant.
Part 1: Growth Mindset
Research shows that beliefs about intelligence and ability impact one’s performance and response to failure. Watch this 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.

Based on a comprehensive review of cognitive and developmental psychology, the key findings in Re-imagining School Readiness aim to surface the skills and conditions that matter most for a child’s success in school and life, and to guide educators and others (including families) in designing learning experiences and environments to support this development.
Part 3: Re-imagining School Readiness: Practical Implications from Research
