DESCRIPTION

River Parishes Community College faculty will share the step-by-step process of an action research project which focused on growth mindset and which meets the goals of NAPE’s EE-STEM II Grant Project. Each of the presenters will share information on the professional development that was provided via NAPE at Stark State College, and how that training was used to investigate and impact their own classroom practice as it pertains to growth mindset. Each presenter will share information on the instruments that were used to determine their own biases, their current classroom practices, their students level of awareness regarding growth mindset, and their students level of engagement regarding growth mindset. Copies of these instruments and other resources used in this project will be provided to the session participants. Each presenter will also share information on the data-driven “treatment” that was implemented in their classes in hopes of influencing the students’ awareness of growth mindset. The data gathered from these instruments as it pertains to each presenter’s classes will also be shared. Any results and conclusions that have been gleaned from this action research project, as well as information on any future research projects will be shared.
