Mindsets in the Classroom

Mindsets in the Classroom:

Building a Culture of Success and Student Achievement in Schools

“Your mind is a garden.  Your thoughts are the seeds.  You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds.”  As teachers and parents of young children, we want our children to grow flowers, not weeds! How can we plant more flower seeds and fewer weed seeds?  New research supports that students with growth mindsets experience more success.  What is a growth mindset and how can we nurture it?  A growth mindset helps our children identify new strategies and approaches to solving problems in school, at home, and in the community.  Join PCCS teachers for an hour of information, sharing, and growth as we examine this compelling concept and learn strategies for building this Mindset Culture with our Future Leaders.
