Unlocking Potential: The Power of Developing & Promoting a Growth Mindset
Whether it is a fixed or a growth mindset, exploring our mindsets allows us to examine our true potential and view failure as an opportunity. In this workshop, participants will learn the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset and how it pertains to working with students. Additionally, participants will evaluate their mindset to see where their beliefs are and discuss how small shifts in thinking and reframing circumstances can dramatically impact daily life inside and outside the classroom. Best practices for classroom management will be examined and tips for developing teacher-student relationships that promote a growth mindset and allow students to flourish.
