Course DescriptionMindset has been shown to increase five research-driven attitudes: optimism, persistence, flexibility, resilience, and empathy. This course combines research-psychological, neurological, and pedagogical, with practical classroom aids. You will learn specific strategies to use in your classroom to improve and affect change and see students reach achievable growth. Learn to implement the five attitudes in the classroom-these qualities make the difference between a child who has a fixed or growth mindset, one who is career and college ready, and one who is not. Learn how to create a welcoming, high-perfoming classroom where all students love to learn, and are engaged for success. The power of mindset is examined as an instrument for change, with an emphasis on how to positively impact students living in poverty.
