Heinemann is proud to co-present a speaking event with Jo Boaler, author and professor of mathematics at Stanford.
Join Jo on the evening of Thursday, April 2nd for the first event, The Mindset Revolution: How to Teach or Parent for a Growth Mindset and Drastically Increase Math Achievement for Students of All Ages.
From its flyer:
In recent years, scientific studies have demonstrated that student and teacher “mindsets” have a profound impact on learning. Students with a “growth mindset,” who believe that intelligence and “smartness” can be learned and that the brain can grow from exercise, learn more effectively. These students display a desire for challenge and show resilience in the face of failure. Such behaviors encourage greater math persistence, engagement, and achievement.
Math teachers play a critical role in the development of mindsets and this session will review the ways to teach for a grown mindset. Jo will share recent research on the brain and math learning that has profound implications for students’ achievements. The keynote will speak to a wider audience of K–12 teachers, parents, and educational leaders.
