Why do we do the things we do? Why don't we change, even when we want to? The answer lies in our habits, the daily behaviors that make up our identity and our outcomes. Students in this course will examine the underlying foundation of habits; how and why they are formed, and why they are so important. Participants will learn how to identify and change habits in their own lives, with their students and in their classroom practice.
