Description: Do you find that your students struggle when they can't find an answer quickly? Or they don't know what to do when they can't figure out a solution on the first try? Join us as we discuss simple ways to focus on mindset in the classroom-learn how to make your students aware of their learning mindset, teach them strategies to use when learning is challenging, and get them excited about taking ownership of their learning. All of these concepts and strategies can be applied to any subject area and grade level. Teach mindset and change the dynamic of your classroom for the school year.
