Implementing growth mindset within the EKAL Schools curriculum!
Sachi Badola is a rising junior at Chelmsford High School and she is a huge proponent of STEAM, growth mindset, and loves Western/Indian singing and theatre. In 2016, Sachi worked with her district's math and science coordinator to create math music videos on topics such as girls in STEM and growth mindset. From there, she fell in love with the concept of having a growth mindset. She was also a keynote speaker at the MASSCUE 2017 conference where she spoke about the power of music and growth mindsets in education, influencing others to bring growth mindset into their classrooms. Growth Mindset is a concept developed by Stanford professor Dr. Carol Dweck, the mind behind mindset. With a growth mindset, students believe that their abilities and skills can be developed, and their failures and challenges become opportunities for growth. This is specifically important for learning; we all make mistakes, but should never give up. This summer, Sachi started a podcast series called "Mindset Monday" addressing having a good mindset in various aspects of life.
These skillsets are invaluable for people with privilege, but they are especially important for underprivileged children who face many challenges in their lives and need a growth mindset in their learning. By making a donation, you are strengthening the spirits and minds of 3 million children. The goal of this campaign is to raise money to incorporate growth mindset into the EKAL education curriculum. EKAL Vidyalaya has done so much for these young kids and adding growth mindset will further empower the students to believe in themselves!
Sachi urges you to donate to this important cause! Please share and spread the word about this. Any amount that you can give will benefit these amazing kids.
