A Mindset for "Good In The World"

Mindset_3H6A0043s

Kristi Mraz and Christine Hertz want to re-frame what it means to be "good" in school, and they see the classroom as a microcosm of the world. Who is working through problems? Who is facing a challenge with flexibility?

In today's video, Kristi and Christine discuss that if we lose sight of our students as our future, problems arise. The authors ask, "What does it mean to be good in the world?" A Mindset for Learning seeks to help build empathy, resilience, and openness among students. Watch the video below.
