Why do some students persevere at learning and other tasks, while others seem to give up at the slightest challenge? A big part of the answer may be their mindset. Come explore how something as seemingly simple as the way we speak to and praise our students – as well as other factors – may have a significant influence on them. This workshop is good for educators of students of all ages – AND for the adults themselves.
