Writing to Affirm Student Values and Close Achievement Gaps

Wednesday, November 1, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Students often come to our courses with preconceived notions about how they will do based on their own identities. Studies have shown that these notions affect student performance. However, research has also demonstrated that we can help students succeed by emphasizing a growth rather than a fixed mindset—that is, all students can learn course concepts and skills regardless of background.
