Modeling a Growth Mindset and Building Agency

Asynchronous: July 6, 2021- August 10, 2021

*An email to join the Canvas course will be sent prior to start date*

DESCRIPTION: This course will outline the work of Carol Dweck’s Growth Mindset stance that when an entire organization embraces a growth mindset, individuals are much more likely to embrace challenges, persist through setbacks, and sustain the effort necessary to become a better version of themselves. It will assist teachers to introduce structures (i.e. Learning Cycle, SMART goals, the Challenge Donut, Mantras, the 3BB4T Rule, and Checklist of Habits). The enhancement of agency has been linked to greater intentionality and forethought, increased persistence to complete difficult work, elevated achievement levels in marginalized populations, greater classroom participation, better self-reflection in struggling students, and decreases in behavioral problems.


  • Participants will choose and modify existing course or lesson expectations to support a growth mindset and nurture student agency. (Example: retry grading policy)

  • Participants will determine how to enhance student feedback to encourage a growth mindset in their classroom.

  • Participants will create structures in courses or lessons where students will have the ability to make choices and manage their own progress.

  • Participants will move past the inherent flexibility of pace and place, and enhance your student experience to include choices about their learning path.
