Not every teacher knows how to respond to or what to do when their students make mistakes. In addition, students often think that mistakes equal failure. Turn that thinking around so that students understand through effort and hard-work, learning and growth occurs.

Participants will be given tools to teach a growth mindset, and learn how to give feedback so students thrive. They will also learn strategies to encourage peer feedback and self-reflection so students understand through hard-work and persistence improvement occurs.
