The right perspective can change everything. The way we address students can have an impact on their learning. In this 1-hour course, “Mindsets Matter Parent Chat: Nurturing Growth Mindset,” Emily Mofield and Megan Parker Peters teach parents how to change their words and actions to encourage growth in students. Mofield and Peters say that when we put less focus on the person and more focus on the process then we encourage students to grow. Rather than praise students for being “smart,” it’s better to praise them for their efforts. This type of nurturing can help students to become progress-driven in all areas of their life.
In this informative course educators will learn:
- The GROWTH model
- The difference between being goal-oriented and person-oriented
- Practical and real-life examples
