The purpose of my research is to determine how student academic self-reflections influence overall mindset change regarding school. I will be working with small groups of 9th and 10th grade students who are receiving high grades in most of their classes, yet are getting a D or F in 1-2 other classes. These students are invited to attend a 6 school day cohort called Lunch & Learn. During these 6 days, I will guide them through self-reflective strategies to help them recognize differences between their classes with higher grades and their classes with lower grades. I will start by asking them to compare what is and isn’t working in their various classes, and share why they think that is. As the 6 days progress, I will check in on them on the status of their goals, and I will help them continue to reflect through personal interview questions, journaling, and mindfulness strategies. I will continue to give them opportunities to self-reflect, and will collect their self-reflections for data. I will also follow-up with a post-cohort survey to analyze whether their mindsets changed after the cohort is over.
