Communities Of Practice Webinar Series — The Mindset Revolution, Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset Monday, February 1, 2016
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (ET)

Free for Everyone
In recent years scientific studies have demonstrated that student and teacher ‘mindsets’ have a profound impact on learning. Students with a ‘growth mindset’ (Dweck, 2006) who believe that intelligence and ‘smartness’ can be learned and that the brain can grow from exercise learn more effectively, displaying a desire for challenge and showing resilience in the face of failure. Such behaviors encourage greater math persistence, engagement and high achievement. This session will review the ways to teach for a growth mindset. We will look together at the latest brain evidence on math learning and consider classroom videos and effective resources that can help students.
