High Meadows School Community Center, Roswell, GA
November 3, 2016


We invite you to join us for a free presentation by Dr. Madeline Levine, PhD. on Thursday, November 3 at 7:00 p.m. in the High Meadows School Community Center. Dr. Levine will speak about broadening our definition of success preparing children for success in the 21st Century. She will have a Q &A at the end of her presentation as well as a book signing. Books will be available for purchase before and after the event. “[Authentic success] knows that every child is a work in progress. It recognizes that children must have the time and energy to become truly engaged in learning, explore and develop their interests, beef up their coping skills, and craft a sense of self that feels real, enthusiastic, and capable.” Dr. Madeline Levine Madeline Levine, M.A., Ph.D. is a psychologist with over 30 years of experience as a clinician, consultant, and educator. Her book The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids explores the reasons why teenagers from affluent families are experiencing epidemic rates of emotional problems. Backed by cutting edge research, Levine proposes solutions that are both practical and credible. Levine’s most recent book, Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success, is a toolbox for parents, providing information, relevant research, and a series of exercises to help parents clarify a definition of success that is in line with their own values as well as their children’s interests and abilities. A popular speaker at schools across the country, Levine sheds light on our sometimes detrimental definitions of success when it comes to today’s children.

FCIS Annual Convention

Hyatt Regency Miami, Miami, FL
November 3-4, 2016

The theme in November will be Cultivating Growth--A Mindset for the Future. Mindsets have been the signature work of Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D, whose renown theory below, is borne of her research on human motivation.

“In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.”

It is the challenge of independent schools to encourage this grit in the learner, to free our students from self-imposed perceptions that limit the breadth and depth of their academic experiences. Thought leaders like Dweck, Angela Duckworth and Thursday’s FCIS 2016 Convention morning keynote speaker Paul Tough provide compelling ideas on why schools must examine how they develop, as Tough says, “a different set of qualities, a list that includes persistence, self-control, curiosity, conscientiousness, grit and self-confidence."
