Workshop concludes at 4:00.
Students hold strong beliefs about their intelligence and capabilities as learners. Have you ever heard a student say, “I’m not a math person,” or “I’m just not good at writing”? Statements like these tell us that many students believe that their intelligence is “fixed.” The latest research shows that growth-oriented mindsets — the belief that knowledge and ability can be developed — increases students’ motivation, achievement, and resiliency and reduces racial, gender, and social gaps. In this workshop we will discuss the latest research regarding growth-oriented mindsets and identify several practical instructional strategies that will encourage the development of growth mindsets in your students.
