SGDSB Math Workshops
Primary and Junior Sessions
Session 1 - The New Math - Building a Balanced Numeracy Program
Session 2 - Brain Based Learning - Do you have a growth mindset?
- Students perform better in school when they and their teachers believe that intelligence is not fixed but can be developed
- Teaching students that intelligence can be "grown" is especially powerful for students who belong to stereotyped groups
- Growth mind-sets focus on effort and motivate students to overcome challenging work.
-Carol S. Dweck
This 90 minute presentation will examine research that supports the positive relationship between growth mindset and academic achievement. We will look at classroom resources and activities that will help students to develop a growth mindset and positive attitude towards learning. The workshop will also look at specific stereotypes associated with learning in mathematics and effective strategies that can be used in math class to promote a learning culture.
