Mindset Development, one of the newest classes implemented at Crestwood High School, focuses on influencing the attitudes of CHSstudents. In the cour se, students lear n about the definition of words and how they can better their lives and thoughts. ?I think students are more aware of themselves, how they act and how that impacts other s. They?re more aware of their actions which then helps them fix and improve how they act and talk around other s,?commented Mr. Denner, a second- year teacher of Mindset. This year, Mr. Justin Denner and Mr s. Alicia Denner have added the cour se Mindset Development II for students who have taken the fir st cour se in the past. ?We teach about words, so we teach about attitude, composure, empathy, and tr ust among other things. We teach about things that can impact individuals while in high school as well as after,?stated Mr. Denner. As of r ight now, Mindset Development II has twenty- five students enrolled for fir st semester. Crestwood senior Katie Saner took the cour se with Mr. Denner dur ing the 2017- 2018 school year and is cur rently enrolled in Mindset Development II. Saner says, ?It?s a fun class that changes your point of view on things and makes you value and respect what you have.?Saner ?s favor ite par t about Mindset Two is the ethical dilemma that comes with each word given. She likes to think about how the word has a different meaning for ever yone or how it could be controver sial. One of Saner ?s favor ite words is empathy. ?Because of the class, I feel like I have a better mindset for life,?commented Saner.
