FAN, Family Action Network, has scheduled some wonderful speakers on the North Shore this year, including Carol Dweck, best-selling author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, who will be giving two talks on Friday, May 9th. Dweck is the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University.
Beginning at 4:30pm, Professor Dweck will speak on “Growth Mindsets and the Wholehearted Embrace of Process.” This talk will be geared towards educators and according to FAN, Prof. Dweck will discuss how a teacher’s enthusiastic and devoted focus on the learning process cultivates a growth mindset in students. At 7:00 in the evening, she will be speaking on “Go for It: Risk-taking, Challenge and the Value of a Growth Mindset.”
Both talks will be held at Evanston Township High School auditorium, 1660 Dodge Avenue, Evanston. Co-sponsored by numerous local organizations and schools, they are free and open to the public and CPDUs will be available at both talks.
