New growth mindset resources available


Jo Boaler is at it again, creating and providing resources to educators about nurturing a growth mindset in mathematics.

Boaler is author of “Mathematical Mindsets,” cofounder of youcubed and professor of mathematics education at Stanford University. She and her team at have launched a new Mathematical Freedom page on the youcubed website, which includes an article she wrote for Time magazine. There also is a new poster for educators that captures the ideas that promote growth mindset, which can be found on the youcubed poster page.

Youcubed also announced new  professional development offerings at Stanford with Boaler for the 2018 year. These Mathematics Leadership Summits are two days of professional learning focusing on leading change in schools, districts and next steps.

Mindset Mathematics Workshops
Join Boaler and the youcubed team on the Stanford campus and learn how to teach math with a growth mindset. Each session is appropriate for K-12 teachers, coaches and administrators. The workshop focuses on exploring content and the pedagogy that promotes a growth mindset.

Each session includes:

  • A 3-hour opening and 2-hour closing session with Jo Boaler;
  • A copy of the summer camp curriculum in print and on a flash drive;
  • Two full days of professional development focusing on mindset mathematics content and pedagogy; and
  • Breakfast and lunch both days.

The dates for 2018 are:

Mathematics Leadership Summits
These summits feature two days of professional learning focused on leading mindset and mathematics change in schools, districts, counties and beyond. You will be engaging in content from the latest neuroscience and mathematics education research, while meeting other professionals who are leading similar changes.

This is an interactive format where participants will discuss challenges and solutions. Topics to be covered include:

  • Building a mindset mathematics culture;
  • Finding resources for your teachers;
  • Leading change and meeting teachers where they are; and
  • Thinking about systems and how they support the mindset mathematics culture.
