Target group: K-12 Teachers/ Administrators. This is an online class through Schoology."Growth Mindset" is a term that gets thrown around a lot in education! This class will cover the foundational elements of growth and fixed mindsets while exploring and discussing the application of mindsets within society, and more specifically schools. Our work in this course will focus on applying our learning to impact our teaching and interactions with students. In doing so, we will develop a toolbox of strategies for helping us and our students to develop a growth mindset.Participants will need to purchase the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck and read the first two chapters of the book before the first session.
