Capstone Project Title
A consistent problem in teaching has been keeping students engaged and motivated in their studies. Typically these problems were equated to either a student’s inability to make a connection to the information, the material being too difficult, or a student feeling inadequate. To promote a deeper understanding and discover ways to ease these issues, this capstone project used the following question as a focal point, what drives students’ motivation to achieve and what steps can be taken to develop a growth mindset in students? This project was centered around growth mindset as it has shown to be an effective tool in strengthening student achievement. Throughout the capstone growth mindset was explored, at length, and culminated in a year long project that implemented teacher training, pedagogy refinement, and community reform. The project was created from numerous studies on the psychology of motivation, cross-cultural viewpoints, and several mindset different interventions and reforms. Following the creation of the project, a small review on personal growth, effectiveness of the plan, and possible limitations were discussed.
