Hello, Fellow Parent Chargers!
To further foster a sense of belongingness and community at Trinity, the PTO would like to invite all parents and guardians to our first Book/Video Club on social and emotional learning! Please read below for some important details.
When and where is the book/video club meeting: November 15 at 5:30-6:30 in Eaton Hall at Trinity Episcopal School
What will we discuss? Helping Your Child Succeed by Cultivating a Growth Mindset
What is a growth mindset? Check out the attached flyer to learn more about what a growth mindset is and why it is important for us to cultivate a growth mindset in our children and ourselves.
Who will lead the discussion? Beth Auslander, Ph.D., psychologist/professor in the Department of Pediatrics at UTMB and parent of a Trinity 5th grader
What will be the format? We will divide up into small groups and discuss information from the book chapter and video listed below. I will have a set of questions to help guide our discussion.
- Read Chapter 7 of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck, PhD
- Watch Dr. Dweck’s 11-minute, Ted Talk: The Power of Yet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-swZaKN2Ic
What if I did not have time to read the chapter and watch the video? Feel free to read the chapter OR watch the video. I know we all get busy, so if you don’t have time to do either, please come to the meeting anyway to learn and share your thoughts.
We are in this parenting thing together. The more we support each other, the further our children will go together!
Hope to see you there!
