“Mindset” Book Club Discussion
Monday, April 18, 2016 6:30 AM


LHCS Site Council Sponsored Parent-Teacher Book Club Discussion Book:


“Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” by Carol Dweck

Date and Time: April 25, 7:00 - 8:30 PM

Location: LHCS Upper Campus Media Center

Discussion Leader: Nicole Bridge, Middle School Math Coordinator, Minneapolis Public Schools

Discussion Content: It’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success—but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset.


In the book, "Mindset," Carol Dweck makes it clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals—personal and professional.
