Most educators are not aware that almost 75% of achievement is a product of psychological skills and a mere 25% is due to actual IQ. The development of skills such as perseverance, resiliency, grit, emotional regulation, and optimism is vital, so they need to be deliberately taught, modeled and promoted in the classroom.
Many just don’t believe they can be successful and are doomed to failure. We now know that we can teach our students to move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, changing how they think about their own abilities and responsibility for learning.
It is my hope that this seminar will open new doors to better help you reach the needs of your students using a growth mindset set of strategies.
This seminar will be the spark that reignites your passion for teaching, as you leave with the desire to transform the lives of your unreachable students. You will learn practical strategies that can be used immediately within your classroom to help your students move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. We will cover ways to teach students how to increase their academic success using growth mindset skills and strategies, and quickly become aware of their own negative self-defeating attitudes that get in the way of learning and controlling their emotions. We will also discuss how to change the meaning of failure and teach students that struggling is a part of learning.
