Conclusion

Author: Tammy Long
Description:

As educators, parents, and students, we spend a lot of time figuring out the best method to learn.  We want the best for our children.  We attend seminars and take classes to learn that math should be taught using the CRA method (Concrete, Representational, Abstract).  We work hard to make our classroom inviting and safe.  We read the research and apply the methods that speak to our teaching styles.  We believe we are making a difference.  Yet we wonder why we still hit brick walls and don’t get as much of a response to our interventions as we’d hoped.  I believe it’s because we’ve failed to bring mindset into the conversation.  It’s not that what we’ve been doing was wrong or ineffective.  It’s that it was incomplete.  Once we learn to foster a growth mindset in the classroom, we can open up opportunities for our students.  All our previous efforts will be optimized and our children will even be able to learn math, simply because they believe they can.
