How Mindset Affects Success
My problems with failure Dr. David Dockterman
Think : When are you a good learner? When, not so good? What do good learners do? Turn & Talk : Share stories. Come up with 2-3 shared behaviors of good learners. Stand & Share : Let’s hear from you.
Why? Persevere Surrender
I believe this is worth doing. I believe I can do it. I believe I can learn what I need.

The Mindset Community
Dr. Karen Mapp
Where do we start in our work of building effective family-school partnerships?
WE START WITH OUR OWN CORE BELIEFS
Essential Core Beliefs Core Belief One All parents have dreams for their children and want the best for them. “…I believe that all parents hold big expectations for the role that schools will play in the life chances of their children. They all harbor a large wish list of dreams and aspirations for their youngsters. All families care deeply about their children’s education and hope that their progeny will be happier, more productive, and more successful than they have been in their lives.” (Lightfoot, 2003)
Core Belief Two All parents have the capacity to support their children's learning.
Core Belief Three Parents and school staff should be equal partners.
Core Belief Four The responsibility for building and sustaining partnerships between school, home, and community rests primarily with school staff, especially school leaders.
WHY HAS IT BEEN DIFFICULT TO CULTIVATE AND SUSTAIN EFFECTIVE FAMILY-SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS THAT SUPPORT STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT?
The various stakeholders (families, district/school leaders and staff) have not had the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills, in other words, the capacity to engage in effective partnerships. Example: Title One, section 1118 requirement for families to be engaged family engagement policy development for schools and districts.
