About this talk

Sure, it's simple to assign work, create a physical space to do it, and to physically get a child there. But how can we help the child transition from home to "school"? In this talk, teacher and educational thought leader Will McDonough discusses the important of routine and "do nows" in an academic setting. Using his recent book, "Pause Together: A Handbook for Humans," as a model, Will demonstrates how a routine of pausing together as a family or school community can enable reflection, gratitude, and a growth mindset while also supporting student task initiation.
