Belmont, September 22, 2017 – On Oct. 3rd, the students of Ralston Middle School will learn about growth mindset and grit from Blake Brandes, who has a doctorate in hip-hop and global
youth cultures, and is a TEDx speaker and international youth motivational speaker.


Brandes will present the work of Carol Dweck and Angela Duckworth in a fun, accessible manner that empowers children of all ages. The presentation will include age-appropriate and
engaging growth mindset and grit lessons infused with beatboxing, comedic storytelling, and family-friendly freestyle rapping.


“When students adopt a growth mindset, they become more resilient when facing challenges at school and at home, are less likely to give up, and believe more in their power to learn new things.” said Blake Brandes.


Marsha Jones, associate superintendent of Springdale Public Schools in Arkansas, said, “Blake Brandes uses his talents as a hip-hop artist to capture the imagination of students and encourages them to pursue their dreams and aspirations. He is very skilled at reaching into the hearts and minds of students as he engages them in thinking about the endless possibilities for future success.”


Through a demonstration of his passion for beatboxing and freestyle rap, along with stories of his own struggle to achieve his goals, Brandes brings energy and enthusiasm to the stage that allows him to connect with students. Brandes has given this presentation to thousands of students across  the country, and is currently scheduled to visit 105 schools in 25 states for the 2017-2018 school year.

It can take up to 72 hours for SchoolLoop to sync with our main computer system so it may be a few days until SchoolLoop reflects changes that have been made in student schedules.

 

Thank you for your patience.
