Come explore first-hand how encouraging a “growth mindset” can motivate people of any age to learn new things in all settings—school, home, work and athletics. Newton South School Council and PTSO invite parents/guardians and high school students to an engaging evening exploring the growth mindset on Wednesday, April 13 from 7–8:30PM at Newton South. You’ll learn:
- Useful methods for encouraging children and teens to try new things and accept challenges
- Effective ways to give praise
- Constructive ways to respond to failure
- Successful strategies for creating a parent-teacher dialogue about students’ development
For an introduction to growth mindset, watch the TED talk by Stanford Psychologist Carol Dweck, author of Mindset.
