Developing a Growth Mindset Within the Classroom
This course introduction/front page shows what information should be provided about each mini-course. This is only an example. Feel free to modify/adapt as you'd like. I want our mini-courses to be creative, instead of only uniformed.
Overview and Purpose
The topic for this mini course is implementing the idea of a growth mindset within the classroom. The purpose of this course is to educate both teachers and students on how to develop a growth mindset. Many times in the classroom students feel discouraged, especially when learning a new concept because they don't know how to do it or think it is too hard. In this course, they will learn about the power of "yet" and what it means to develop a growth mindset lifestyle.

|300px - using any number sets the width of the image
|left - or right sets the alignment and allows text to wrap around the other side
