Psychological Barriers to Success:
Beliefs that prevent students from reaching their potential,
and how we can change them.
with: Dr. Carissa Romero
Many students with great potential fall short in their academic achievement. These students often have negative beliefs that prevent them from performing to their full potential. For example, some students think that they are just not smart enough--that they were born stupid and that there is nothing they can do to change that. Other students worry that people like them do not belong in school.
These beliefs can have surprisingly large effects on students' achievement. This presentation will address these negative beliefs and focus on intervention research showing the effects of changing these beliefs. These brief interventions (often about 90 minutes) have improved students' GPAs, standardized test scores, and reduced the racial achievement gap.
