The beliefs we hold about intelligence directly influence our ability to learn, think critically and our level of achievement. In this class you will learn the difference between a growth mindset (belief that anyone’s intelligence can develop through hard work and perseverance) and a fixed mindset (belief that intelligence is assigned and can’t be increased). Also, you will find ways to foster a growth mindset in yourself, your students and their parents. These changes will positively impact the learning of every student regardless of subject, age or past performance. Grades K-12.
Thank you for both classes this summer! I love having classes that are completely applicable and relevant to my classroom!

I took this class as a requirement for my continuing teaching license. This has been the most engaged and excited I have been about a continuing ed class for quite a few years. Thank you for your feedback and assignments.

I can’t wait to get back to school and share my learning with my colleagues. I’m so excited to start my school year with some very powerful lessons and activities that will set up a great culture in our classroom! There isn’t one thing specifically I am most excited to try- it’s everything! Thank you for the wonderful resources and feedback throughout the class. I truly enjoyed it and think this is one of the best classes I have taken!
