The essentials for creating a supportive and inclusive space for all

Learning is hard work and the latest education research shows that a sense of psychological safety is a must if we want students to successfully progress along their education journey.

In Mindframes for Belonging, Identities, and Equity, you'll discover ten unique mindframes backed by extensive education research and real-life scenarios. Through self-reflection and powerful vignettes, you'll learn how to apply these core principles in your daily life to foster a more inclusive and understanding learning environment. Inside, the authors explore the five critical themes behind these mindframes, including

  • Impact and Efficiency
  • Feedback and Assessment
  • Challenging Growth
  • Learning Culture and Relationships
  • Ownership and Accountability

Harnessing the power of these mindframes is not just about improving education--it's about fostering an environment where every student feels valued, safe, and able to learn without fear.
