Here’s what teachers, administrators and students are saying about Mindset Works programs.
“Brainology teaches kids to take ownership of their learning experience by being the one doing the work… it teaches them that doing work is a really positive thing because it’s going to help them to become smarter.”
“Our 6th graders completed the Brainology program, and it certainly had a significant impact both on their attitudes towards learning and on their own self-beliefs. They became much more aware of their own individual learning styles, and they realized that practice is the key to making progress. I noticed that many students gained an increased willingness to take responsibility for their academic progress, mainly because they came to believe in their own ability to impact their academic performance through effort and determination. We observed a great improvement in both the attitudes and exam scores of historically low-achieving students. Going through the units, I saw these children gain a greater confidence in themselves, which translated directly into improved test results.”
“The kids really do take to Brainology. At first they’re not sure what it is, but once you get into it, they start to develop their own ideas. One kid said, ‘I’m not really dumb, am I?’ It really does change their lives.”
“We had no idea that it could have such a powerful impact. It may be that these most important discoveries about the human brain will revolutionize the way we think about motivating students and empowering educators.”
“The program really helped our students and staff to have a common language. By going through the modules, our students were able to understand how their brain works, and how they could increase their success with study skills. After completing the modules, one 8th grade boy made the A/B honor roll for the first time since 3rd grade. When I asked him what the difference was, he said that now he understood that learning was not always going to come easy to him and that didn’t mean he was stupid, it just meant he needed to work harder on that subject. In addition, our teachers commented on how their students who would usually give up were staying more engaged through the learning process and were having the understanding that continuing to persist did make a difference.”
“With middle-schoolers, there are always excuses. But Brainology shifts the language to be about payoff from effort, rather than ‘the test was too hard’ or ‘the teacher doesn’t like me’.”
“The brainology program was very useful because it taught me a lot about my brain and how it works so that i now can apply that knowledge to my academic education.”
Sarah, 6th grade
“The program was fun. I’ve learned new things in a funny way. All those things will help me in all kinds of thinking, like learning for school or playing chess in weekend.”
Marcella, 4th grade
“I thought the Brainology program was fun and interesting, and had subjects kids could relate to. I’ve found ways to remember what I’ve learned in school and what to do in order to help my brain function and learn WAY better! think Brainology will help me a lot in school.”
Marian, 6th grade
