Boosting Motivation and Achievement



This workshop will help teachers implement a growth mindset curriculum, which has been proven to lead to greater motivation levels and higher achievement for students, in their classrooms. Through experiential and interactive activities, you’ll learn strategies to increase your own growth mindset as an educator, as well as how to develop and integrate the growth mindset philosophy in the classroom.

Also, you’ll receive the tools and strategies to implement a growth mindset curriculum that is super-easy, but offers big benefits for your classroom community. And you’ll leave with ready-to-go mini-lessons that will help develop gritty, determined, self-reliant students who know that if they work hard enough they can and will accomplish great things.
