Know Thyself: Academic Mindsets Part 1

If we really want to create learning environments in our schools where all learners are valued and seen as capable of achieving desired outcomes, we have to begin with the belief that they can. But to cultivate this belief, we must start with understanding ourselves. In this session, we will use the design thinking process to explore our own identities and the unique lenses we apply to our environments. Then, we will unpack four academic mindsets for deeper learning (from Dr. Camille Farrington’s work at the University of Chicago) and leverage our collective voices to ideate about how to cultivate academic mindsets for deeper learning in our schools and classrooms.

Audience: Elementary Teacher, Middle Teacher, High School Teacher, Elementary Counselor, Middle School Counselor, High School Counselor, Elementary Administrators, Middle School Administrators, High School Administrators, Superintendent, District Office Leaders
