GLEAM Study Goals:

  1. To teach students about different mindsets regarding intelligence, and some of the benefits of adopting a growth mindset
  2. To help equip students with better study strategies and tools to be successful in school
  3. To help improve students’ attitudes towards math and their academic achievement

The GLEAM Study aims to help students be more successful in school. The purpose of this project is to maximize a child’s opportunity to learn and succeed academically, which requires confronting two types of challenges. The first challenge involved teaching the students good study strategies, and the second is motivating them to use those strategies to be successful. The GLEAM project focuses on the intersection of these two challenges, and we are developing ways to overcome them through straightforward, easy-to-implement strategies that can be used by teachers, counselors, and the students themselves.

We want to foster on-going relationships with schools, administrators, teachers, and students by

  • Bringing cutting-edge educational research into schools
  • Improving student performance and potential teacher effectiveness through mindset education
  • Working to implement the project in a way that is minimally intrusive and disruptive to existing schedule and lesson plans
  • Offering incentives and financial support to math departments involved in this project
