Math Mindsets: The Power of Yet

Referencing the work of Jo Boaler, Carol Dweck, and more!

Too many students think they are “bad” at Math. The Southern Indiana Education Center has invited Bill Reed from INcompassing Learning to facilitate explore how to embrace the "Power of Yet" in the math classroom. Participants can expect a day full of:

  1. Interactive strategies and activities to help show all students, even those who are convinced that they are bad at math, how they can enjoy and succeed in math. Mistakes will be encouraged and celebrated as they should be in the math classroom!
  2. The best methods by which students learn math, as well as the specific approaches that can be utilized step by step to successfully help students develop a growth mindset.
  3. A good dose of research completed by Jo Boaler and Carol Dweck (Stanford University) used to help teachers develop a plan to improve Mathematical Mindset and create a growth mindset classroom for students.
