Academy Sessions Descriptions

 

GROWTH MINDSET: A GAME CHANGER FOR LEARNING – Growth Mindset is defined as the belief that intelligence can be developed with persistence, effort, and focus on improvement. During this 3-hour session, participants will gain an understanding of how a focus on growth mindset helps all students perform, and struggle/mistakes actually help the brain. When students focus on improvement, it can be a game changer for student success. This workshop will provide specific strategies to use in the classroom and practical ways to get buy-in from students, parents, and school staff. Based on the research of Carol Dweck and Mary Cay Ricci.

Participants will understand how these factors impact achievement and walk away with strategies to implement in their classroom/school to raise student achievement.
