Testimonials

"A few years ago I was approached to join for a night of fun, creativity and camaraderie, the first Master Teachers event. The range of teachers attending is very diversified. We have teachers representing all types of schools across the Chicago area, and all grade levels, from preschool to high school. I have gained from the other teachers and I hope they have gained from me. The demonstrations at the end are always enlightening and inspiring. I have definitely implemented some into my class’s repertoire"

- Rivkie Levitin, Joan Dachs Bais Yaakov

It contains curricular resources for so many subjects- all beautiful in appearance, well thought out, and very useful…"

Quick Tip: Help Your Students Develop a Growth Mindset
 
According to Carol Dweck, the author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, if one has a “growth mindset”, one can increase one’s intelligence and potential. When students believe they can develop their intelligence, talents and skills through planning, persistence, and hard work, they have a growth mindset. Instead of exhibiting fear of failure, they will look upon their mistakes as learning opportunities. Here are some important things to remember when establishing a growth mindset classroom.
 
  • Make sure that each student knows that you care about him and that you believe that if he works hard and perseveres, he will learn, grow, and succeed.
  • Encourage your students to take on new challenges. Instill excitement for learning new things – not for the grade, but for the experience of discovery.
  • Give students honest, constructive feedback. When praising a student, praise him for the process: his hard work, his searching for different ways to problem-solve, and his perseverance - NOT for being smart or getting a good grade.
  • Help students when they make mistakes or get wrong answers. You can say, “I see you worked hard, let’s go over this together to see what you don’t understand yet.” Guide him to look at different strategies for solving the problem. Reassure him that if he keeps working at it he will learn many important things.
