We are thrilled to announce that Mindset Works, in partnership with U.C. Davis, was recently awarded a $3.5 million dollar national grant through the Department of Education to test the impact of Brainology® on student motivation and achievement. We are currently recruiting Middle School partners who may be interested in participating in the 2017-18 or 2018-19 school years. Eligible schools will receive programs, resources & teacher training for free!
Decades of research by Dr. Carol Dweck and colleagues have demonstrated how holding a growth mindset – the understanding that abilities grow with effort and practice – benefit student motivation and achievement. Building upon previous pilots that have shown Brainology's promise, this project is implementing a large-scale randomized control trial to explore its impact more broadly.
Additional benefits include:
● Potential for increased student motivation and achievement
● Depending on the district regulations of a school, either a school donation, or a stipend for participating teachers who complete program and research activities will be provided
● Participating students will receive a small gift
