PDE COURSE NUMBER 20180072
Audience: The course is designed for anyone interested in learning more about growth mindset including teachers K-12 in all subject areas and disciplines; for reading specialists; speech and language therapists; nurses; school counselors; parents; school and district administrators.

Description: A growth mindset is the belief that intelligence can be developed with effort. Students with a growth mindset understand they can get "smarter" through hard work, the use of effective strategies, and getting help from others when needed. A fixed mindset is the belief that intelligence is a fixed trait handed out at birth. Course participants will review the research about the brain and how the brain, like a muscle, changes and grows in response to challenge. Throughout the course we will explore how we, as educators, can praise students for effort and process rather than praising them for being "smart." Participants will be reading and discussing Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck and Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth, so you will need to obtain these books for the course. Participants will take with them practical strategies to implement whether they are teachers, counselors, speech therapists, nurses, parents, or simply anyone who wants to learn more about fostering a growth mindset in themselves or others.

59. Non-Public Workshop - Cultivating a Growth Mindset

Program: Non-Public Events

Audience: Nonpublic Teachers from Delaware County Schools ONLY

Dates: 9/12/2019

Target Audience: Nonpublic Teachers from Delaware County Schools ONLY

Description: Cultivating a Growth Mindset in a classroom is a vital skill. Sudents with a growth mindset believe that they can learn to complete tasks, solve complex problems, or grow their intelligence, rather than assuming they "can" or "cannot" do something based on their current abilities. Students with a fixed mindset is the belief that intelligence and talents are static, leading students to believe that their potential for success is based on whether they currently possess the required abilities. These students are often tempted to give up when things get hard-they may run from challenges, see mistakes as failures, or approach success differently to their classmates with a growth mindset. According to Kazakoff & Mitchell, "Students who possess a fixed mindset are often preoccupied with the notion of high performance and will seek opportunities where they can prove their skills while avoiding situations where their weaknesses might be revealed."

Having a growth mindset is essential to lifelong success, and it is something that students can develop with practice.

For Nonpublic Teachers from Delaware County Schools ONLY. This workshop is being provided through Non-Public Schools Funding. You must be employed by a Delaware County Nonpublic School to attend this workshop.

Description: In this session, teachers and leaders will learn precisely where schools should focus their precious time and resources to ensure that all students are prepared for the demands of college, careers and citizenship. They will learn about the three most essential elements of good schooling, and how to implement them on a clear, straightforward model. The three elements are:

Coherent curriculum
Authentic literacy
Soundly-structured lessons

Despite their unrivaled power for improving performance in any school, these elements continue to be misunderstood--and grossly under-implemented. For this reason, they should be our first and highest priority.
