Mind in the Making is an unprecedented effort to share the science of children’s learning with the general public, families, and professionals who work with children and families. Based on the book Mind in the Making by Ellen Galinsky, these workshops focus on the seven essential life skills that every child needs to thrive.

“If you look at what predicts how well children will do later in school, more and more evidence is showing that executive functions — working memory and inhibition — actually predict success better than IQ tests.”

Adele Diamond

Mind in the Making training modules draw on brain development research to inform practices that lead to better outcomes for children by promoting the seven essential life skills. Each workshop provides participants the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and practices, learn what researchers have discovered about how children learn best, and discuss how to apply this research in their role as a parent, caregiver, or educator.

The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is committed to bringing this valuable resource to parents, grandparents, child-care professionals, early-learning educators, and caregivers. Since the first facilitator training in May 2016, the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading has trained more than 70 facilitators to lead Mind in the Making education efforts in the community. To date, these facilitators have delivered Mind in the Making’s training modules to more than 1,197 people throughout the Suncoast region.

If you would like to have a series of workshops at your place of employment, church, or community organization, please contact us.
