The MITM workshop series consists of 8 sessions, each focusing on techniques to support on of the essential life skills in yourself and in your students. The first session will introduce the program; each subsequent session will focus on one of the seven essential skills: focus and self-control, perspective taking, communicating, making connections, critical thinking, taking on challenges, self-directed engaged learning. Participants will set personal goals to help them enhance their professional practice and promote children’s development of each of the skills.
