Deeper Dive Into The Science of Reading with NCCAT

These participants delved into current Science of Reading research to support learning around the essential components of reading instruction at the NCCAT Cullowhee campus. We appreciate them joining us for "Deeper Dive into the Science of Reading" in Cullowhee. Their work included discovering the tenets of structured literacy to ensure all children have access to effective reading instruction.

Dweck s Mindset. Dweck, a psychologist at Stanford University, discovered with decades of research the power of our mindset. Dweck explains that it is not just our abilities and talents that bring about success, but whether we approach our goals with a fixed or growth mindset.
