In this insightful webinar you'll be given practical insights into how to develop Growth Mindset in your students. We will explore many of the social media myths and misunderstandings about Growth Mindset, and explain why these shallow approaches have failed to produce significant changes in students Mindsets or student results.  You'll be introduced to the Mindset Continuum (c) as the paradigm-shifting tool to help you move from teaching "about" Growth Mindset, and instead to focus on teaching "for" Growth Mindset. You'll be offered a powerful model for how to view your work with Growth Mindset, and practical tools as you begin to develop your Growth Mindset Style Guide to help your students to become increasingly growth-oriented.
