Learn how to bring the WOOP (Wish, Outcome, Obstacle, Plan) method to your school or district. Originally developed for adults, Dr. Gabriele Oettingen has worked with Character Lab to use and research WOOP in the classroom setting. When used with fidelity, WOOP helps students set and achieve goals and improves student effort. 

In this session, Panorama's Kevin Stein and Character Lab's Jenn Charlot join Dr. Oettingen to discuss using the WOOP method with teachers and students. Bring free resources back to your district and school to share effective goal-setting practices that can spark enthusiasm and improve effort.
