About this Event 

This event, designed for K-8 educators, will feature Giacomo Bono, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology at California State University Dominguez Hills, and co-author of Making Grateful Kids: The Science of Building Character. Bono will provide a thought-provoking lecture on the science of gratitude, giving particular attention to it's role in child development, and the value of gratitude promotion for K-8 students, classrooms, schools, and society. 

Questions to be addressed include:

- How can gratitude promotion help personalize learning for students as well as support social and leadership skills in them?

- How can harnessing gratitude school-wide spark meaningful changes in schools, and help them better engage families and surrounding communities?

Bono will also address the practical angle of promoting gratitude in K-8 classrooms by describing some of the lessons of the gratitude curriculum he is currently testing with research (which emphasizes grades 4-8). 

Attendees can expect interactive workshop elements, to help them come up with tangible, innovative ideas that they can start putting into action right away.
