Learn a methodical way to help your students obtain a new way of thinking that helps them succeed in life and in the classroom – even in the face of setbacks.

This revolutionary new class will change the way you view the world and equip you to help your students become thriving achievers. Depression, pessimism, and having a fixed mindset are all barriers to learning and this class will help you guide your student out of a pessimistic mindset and into the mindset of an achiever. Building on the work of Dr. Seligman (University of Pennsylvania) and Dr. Dweck (Stanford), this class is a must for any teacher looking for a research-backed method for improving student performance.
