I am excited to announce that I will be presenting a full-day Pre-Conference Institute next year at “ASCD Empower, the Conference for Learning, Teaching, & Leading Together,” which will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center Los Angeles. Pre-Conference Institutes will take place March 12 and 13, with the conference to follow on March 16-20.
Entitled “Cultivating Growth Mindsets: 20 Strategies for Educators,” the Pre-Conference Institute will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on March 13. The session will focus on why combining growth mindsets with effective learning strategies is a proven formula for increasing student achievement.
Those who attend will experience the exhilaration of learning powerful, proven principles for cultivating growth mindsets and learning skills within all students. During the session, attendees will explore the characteristics of fixed and growth mindsets and take a short assessment to examine their own mindset.
Part of this interactive session will explore the use of the Assumptions, Behavior, and Consequences (ABC) model in conjunction with each mindset. In addition, participants will discover seven principles for cultivating growth mindsets in the classroom while also gaining an understanding of how neural plasticity provides a scientific foundation for growth mindsets.
The 20 strategies at the core of this program are designed to enhance opportunities for all students to experience learning success, including those who face learning challenges. Participants will leave knowing how to support students to be more optimistic and resilient when learning and to set high expectations and growth goals; create learning environments that support focused energy, active engagement, and positive relationships; craft lessons that allow students to learn by using the brain's multiple pathways; and provide students with feedback that supports high motivation and builds growth mindsets.
