There is a lot of buzz surrounding the idea of growth mindset in mathematics in the last few years. Current research shows the need for clarification on when and how to build and encourage a growth mindset for students in order for it to have the most impact on student learning. This unique, blended course will involve participating in an online course designed by the authority on growth mindset for math, Stanford professor Jo Boaler. After completing the course, our cohort will take a deep look at what we’ve learned as it applies to an Alaska math classroom. Facilitated by BobbiJo Erb. Target Audience: K-12 educators.
