Life's best kept secret to success..... is failure. This session will explore instructional tools, provide experiences on how to rumble with failure, and demonstrate the importance of perseverance. Research shows that growth mindset and grit are better determinants for success than intelligence or educational experiences. Participants that want to be engaged, while learning how to play with a safe dose of failure, with intentional and appropriate frustration, need to attend this session. Participants will leave with a year long plan on how to implement growth mindset. This session is customized for K-12 learners.
