Growth Mindset and Math
On February 10th at 6:30pm-8:30pm in the Langston Hughes Middle School Lecture Hall will be hosting the Growth Mindset and Math! Workshop for all the South Lakes Pyramid Schools parents. This workshop is focused on the growth mindset. Growth mindset is a simple, powerful concept studied by Carol Dweck and explained in her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. Essentially, if you have a growth mindset you believe that your intelligence and abilities — how well you do in math class, how you backhand a tennis ball, how effectively you manage your time — can improve with effort. In this session, families will explore the value of a growth mindset and hear strategies to help them develop one for themselves and their children. There will be a discussion on math readiness, adult praise and how a growth mindset can help a child not to give up if they are struggling with math.
