Carol Dweck, Ph.D., "Mindset: Positive Skills for Powerful Kids"
Dr. Dweck's groundbreaking book, "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success", is required reading for many local teachers. In it, Dweck explains why being smart and talented doesn't always mean you'll be successful, and why a "fixed" mindset can limit or even undermine success. This lecture presents the rare chance to hear Dweck explain the one simple idea about the brain that can raise your child's grades - and your productivity. Find out practical ways to encourage a "growth" mindset in your child - and create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment.
Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., is one of the world's leading researchers in the field of motivation and is the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University. She has held professorships at Columbia and Harvard Universities, has lectured all over the world, and has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Her scholarly book "Self-Theories: Their Role in Motivation, Personality, and Development" was named Book of the Year by the World Education Federation. Her work has been featured in such publications as The New Yorker, Time, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Boston Globe, and she has appeared on NBC's Today Show and ABC's 20/20.

Co-sponsored by the Parent Education Committees of West Mercer, Island Park, Lakeridge, Islander Middle and Mercer Island High Schools.
