This five-session eCourse includes practical, research-based activities and a new gratitude curriculum shared by educator and author, Owen Griffith. Owen’s book, Gratitude: A Way of Teaching, offers structure to help guide the course as we  create opportunities for educators to explore gratitude as a way to improve class culture; academic and social success for students; and satisfaction and resilience in students and educators alike. This experience will offer the chance for teachers to not only learn from Owen’s experience, but also to share, learn and receive support from others taking the course.

Please join us and help reshape the world of education with gratitude!

~ Robert A. Emmons, Editor-in-Chief, The Journal of Positive Psychology; author of Gratitude Works! and Thanks! How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier

Additional praise for Gratitude: A Way of Teaching:

In a time of tests, accountability, and burnout, Gratitude: A Way of Teaching beautifully encourages teachers and students to connect to their own and each other’s humanity by stopping for a moment and asking, “What is wonderful about life?”

~ Vicki Zakrzewski, PhD, Education Director, Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley


In Gratitude: A Way of Teaching, Owen M. Griffith does a superb job at giving teachers practical strategies for making their students grateful. Following these strategies, and with patience and persistence, we can significantly influence the children in our own personal worlds. And, if we do, that will influence programs, clubs, schools, and other institutions in the community, too….Our society needs this more than ever. 

~ Jeffrey J. Froh, Associate Professor, Hoffstra University and co-author of Making Grateful Kids: The Science of Building Character


In a very practical way, Owen M. Griffith shows us how gratitude can be incorporated into the schools. Filled with inspiring examples and many practical suggestions, Gratitude: A Way of Teaching can be used to improve the gratitude of students in your classroom, and perhaps more importantly, it should help teachers generate a more grateful attitude toward their students.

~ Philip Watkins, Professor of Psychology, Eastern Washington University
