Parent Academy: What is Growth Mindset?

Reported by on 10/10/17

Parent Academy:

"What is Growth Mindset?" is on Wednesday, October 18​—th from 6:30-7:30pm in the LMC.

During this academy, we will explore Carol Dweck's work on Mindset. We will learn about the difference between a fixed and a growth mindset. We will also look at some research on the brain and how we learn. Finally, we will discuss how Growth Mindset is being implemented at Peterson. Many teachers at Peterson have already read her book, Mindset. Here is a link to learn more about Carol Dweck and her book:

It is our hope that after attending the academy, you will have a better understanding of Growth Mindset and how we are using it to help our students to achieve their highest potential.
