Last week I attended a Growth Mindset session at an education conference. The presenters had a great idea for developing growth mindset in teachers. They had four great articles about growth mindset, and they asked teachers to jigsaw the articles and talk about implications with students. Then, the articles could be read again with secondary students to help them understand growth mindset. The articles were:
Even Geniuses Work Hard, by Carol Dweck,
How Not to Talk to Your Kids, by Po Bronson
Is It True That Some People Just Can't Do Math?, by Daniel Willlingham
The Perils and Promises of Praise, by Carol Dweck
Rrrright! That is honestly half the battle. You need them to "buy in." Anthony Muhammad has written a very practical approach book that identifies four groups within a school culture. Each group has distinct characteristics that motivate them. You may find it helpful to approach the mindset of growth with this type of insight. He also has some videos on YOU TUBE that can give you an idea of how to get real change started and cultivated.
