Mindset Book Study

Image from
How can you help students - and yourself - focus on the factors that lead to positive growth to foster increasing success? Author Carol Dweck offers her insights on the topic based on years of research in Mindset, The New Psychology of Success. Dweck examines the characteristics and origins of two mindsets - fixed and growth - and how they influence achievements in various areas of our lives. The book closes with ideas to help change mindsets to focus on positive growth and perseverance.

Our Book Study will meet 4 times (once monthly) from February through May 2018. Our discussions will focus on how we can apply Dweck's research directly to our classrooms, our students, and ourselves. 

The first 25 persons to commit to all four meetings will receive a copy of Dweck's Mindset book free!

This is open to all teachers and administrators in Galesburg CUSD 205.
