Anyone that's been in the classroom for the past decade can attest to the drastically increasing proportion of apathetic, under-motivated students. Rather than blame it on the generation and accept its inevidability, this presentation discusses the effect of two distinct "mindsets" on everyday decision making, how it leads to this level of apathy, and how the problem (fixed) mindset can be corrected! This discussion also highlights a historically forgotten student population, the high-achieving perfectionist, and how the proper mindset could help our brightest students break away from the shackles of perception and reach limitless potential! This honest, direct, and often comical discussion will help to highlight the need for all parties to accept their role in this transformation, and may even open your eyes to how mindset affects your lives outside of the classroom.
