Growth Mindset, Days 1 & 2

Structuring for Resilience!

September 29–30, 2021 in Buffalo Grove, Illinois

Students with a “growth mindset” persist in the face of setbacks. They are resilient. The result: higher achievement, greater optimism, and greater life success. The good news: We can foster a growth mindset as we teach, without taking time off our regular curriculum! Using Kagan Structures and other proven strategies, we provide our students a small shift in mentality that makes a huge change in attitudes and behaviors. Adopting an empowering mindset shapes the lives of our students in class and beyond. Learn to shed the “fixed mindset” for yourself and for your students. Learn why simply praising effort can be a growth mindset trap. Join us to release the power of a Growth Mindset.
