Teaching the Growth Mindset (and Motivation)

I’ve been looking at a lot of articles and research recently about mindsets and the recent push forward that the “mindset concept” has made in the beliefs about intelligence. The attached article talks about ways that teachers can begin to actually teach Carol Dweck’s “Growth mindset” to students…it starts with the vocabulary you use and the way you speak to kids about their learning experience. It’s an interesting article and with our Mindset book discussion coming up next week as a part of SIPs, this is a great read to get you thinking about how the Mindset Revolution can impact our students! It’s powerful stuff and it plays a huge piece in helping our students achieve great things; not only now but in the future…but that’s just my two cents 🙂 As usual, I’d love to hear your thoughts!!

This article summary came from the Marshall Memo, an amazing professional resource!!
