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. In this workshop Dr. Jo Boaler will present recent evidence on the brain and on learning, and on ways to encourage growth mindsets. The workshop will also focus on Common Core mathematics, highlighting the different dimensions of high quality teaching including classroom messages and norms, tasks and other curricular materials, assessment, feedback and grading that will prepare students for success with the Common Core.
