This learning event is right for you if you are an educator wanting your students to progess on the continumm toward a Growth Mindset.
This powerful and practical masterclass will give you the insights, understandings and most importantly the tools you need to move students along the Mindset Continuum.
Underpinning this masterclass is the key idea that teachers need to be teaching FOR a Growth Mindset, not ABOUT a Growth Mindset. This masterclass focuses on teacher actions, and how we focus and direct these everyday actions to ensure students develop a Growth Mindset and ultimately achieve more.
With over 15 years of supporting teachers and schools to develop Growth Mindset, James Anderson is committed to your success and the success of your students, so this is not a “hit and run” professional learning event. Every teacher attending this masterclass will receive bonus learning resources and support, with 12 months personal access to the Growth Mindset Masterclass online course included with the course registration (valued at $250), plus invitations to attend virtual Growth Mindset events throughout the year.
