Online Book Club

Hosted by OIT & LM for HCPSS

Starts in February, Runs Until May

In Mindset, Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success–but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals–personal and professional.

All communication and assignments will occur via Edmodo. Use the join code: wc9ig7
