RESHAPE. ENHANCE. TRANSFORM.

SHAPING STUDENT MINDSET: The KEY to student achievement with new standards, and coming Assessments.

A co-sponsored event hosted by Hillsborough School District

Thursday July 30, 2015

Join us for an exclusive symposium focused on how mindset, productive persistence and other social-emotional factors influence math success – particularly achievement outcomes for FSA Level 1 and 2 students enrolling in Algebra and those retaking the Algebra EOC exam, and how these can be intentionally shaped to support student learning. This will be relevant toward supporting students’ mastery of the new standards for Mathematics, and their high achievement on related assessment tests.

Preview an educator’s course developed by the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin.

Who should attend? All interested Instructional Administrators, Math Directors, Math Coaches and Lead Math Teachers. This workshop is intended to bring together an exclusive group of educators to ensure focused collaboration.

Participants will:

Review today’s research and its relevance to your district through:

  • Collaborative problem solving strategies
  • Building social-emotional skills and strategies
  • Developing ideas critical to shaping student learning and academic success

Observe the research tools in action with:

  • Teachers and administrators from surrounding districts will be attending a concurrent Regional Training Seminar
  • Observation of planning and preparation for district integration

Learn from implementation experts by:

  • Peer discussion about strategies to effectively translate the research into practice
  • Question and answers about vision, challenges and student achievement outcomes
  • Special Guests: Donna De Sena–Hillsborough County Secondary Mathematics District Resource Teacher

Research demonstrates that what students think about their potential as learners—and what educators think about their students’ learning capacity—dramatically affect outcomes. A growth mindset is just the beginning. We are excited to work together to transform student achievement outcomes by reshaping the way students interact with content and concepts, and enhancing mathematics instruction.
