    Easy to follow.

  2. Jayson – CARROLLTON-FARMERS BRANCH ISD (verified owner)

    Favorite course yet. This will help me going forward in the way I phrase things to my students. Whether gifted or not, I can help create a growth mindset in my classroom that all students can take advantage of
    I also like some of the strategies, like articulating their thinking.
    And finally, I like the classroom activities. I am going to use these going forward to promote the development and encourage growth mindedness in all my students.

    This course is well worth your time to learn about growth mindset. The concept is well defined and explored.

  23. Tammy – CARROLLTON-FARMERS BRANCH ISD (verified owner)

    This was a great series but is challenging to see it align with our educational system today. There is work to do to allow this to all set in and be put into practice in todays classroom. Both with gifted and with students with disability we are ill equipped to manage. I believe labels at any stage are road blocks for all involved to see a learners full potential.
