Access Students' Minds for Learning: Practical Strategies to Increase Students Ability to Overcome Challenges Using Self-Talk and Teacher Praise

Many students compare themselves to others and give up before trying to tackle a challenge. These students who struggle learning often tell themselves, "I can't do it, "It's too hard for me, or "The other kids are better than me. Creating healthy minds and positive decision-making skills begins with the ability to align thoughts with desired actions. Establish a classroom environment that fosters positive thinking and growth mindsets that are supported by positive praise. The ability to use positive self-talk has a direct impact on academic, behavioral and social-emotional development. Identifying then replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts influences students' ability to take initiation and reach their goals. This course will focus on identifying proactive and reactive language, what their underlying meaning is and how to teach students to take control of their thoughts and become empowered. Activities and resources will be made available for immediate use with students to foster the foundation of self-awareness, self-monitoring and self-talk. This enlightening, collaborative and fun workshop provides educators with information and proven classroom strategies to turn, "I can't to "I can and I will! by learning to:

• Understand the relationship thoughts have with actions

• Teach students proactive thinking strategies

• Identify key words that encourage a fixed mindset and learn positive replacement words to foster growth mindsets

• Increase positive thinking as it relates to academic, behavior and social-emotional skills

• Create opportunities for students to take action on positive thoughts and throw away self-defeating thoughts
