In her groundbreaking research, psychologist Carol Dweck set out to answer a very basic question: Why do some people “stick with it” when things get tough, while others give up? Her conclusions regarding fixed vs. growth mindset sent ripples through the parenting and educational world and spurred the popularity of many other key concepts, including “grit” and “failing forward.”
In this workshop we examine the ramifications of mindset theory on curriculum, instruction, and classroom management. We provide exercises designed to reinforce these principles while discussing how our mindsets affect our students’ capacity to engage and learn.
This course is part of the NUMINDS INSPIRATOR CREDENTIAL (1 of 3 courses), as well as:
