GROWTH MINDSET WORKSHOPS:

Feb 24th – Growth Mindset for Math
April 14th — Pushing Through Frustration
May 5th – Growth Mindset for Writing

The StudyPro is offering three free workshops for 4th and 5th Graders to help students understand and begin to develop a growth mindset. All workshops are free, but limited to 25 students.

Growth Mindset: Getting our Minds Set for Math! – February 24th from 1:30 – 3pm

How many times have we heard “I’m just no good at math!”?  The truth is that “being good” at math means honoring the process vs. pushing fast to get to the answer.  However, many students struggle with the 4 best practices that are goals for all mathematicians.  Good mathematicians learn to:

  • persevere through problem solving
  • check answers using different methods
  • plan how to solve a problem vs. jumping into a solution
  • justify answers and communicate with others

During this workshop, we will focus on how to use a growth mindset to shift our goal from “get it done fast” to “honor the process” as well as teach tools and strategies that students can use to work through challenging problems and reduce anxiety when they get stuck.

Please note that all Workshops are free, however limited to 30 students. Each student must be registered separately.

Growth Mindset to Push Through Frustration – April 14th from 1:30 – 3pm
In this workshop, we will (re)learn what a Growth Mindset is, and why it matters, especially focusing on what we can do when we get frustrated.  We will look at when we get “stuck”, how we react, and what words and approaches we can use to help “push through” that frustration. We will also introduce some new strategies for chunking work and reading, and will provide each student structures to ensure that there is adequate time to get homework done.

Using Growth Mindset Strategies for Writing!- May 5th from 1:30 – 3pm
No matter how much we want to maintain a Growth Mindset, writing can be tough!  Whether it’s getting started, knowing what to write about, figuring out where to take a story, or being open to editing our own work, writing can put anyone on the brink of giving up. During this Growth Strategies workshop, we will explore different types of writing, practice ideas to get started when you are stuck and learn how to look at editing in a more positive light.
