Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff | Common Core Topics | Scoop.it

An idea that is beginning to gain a lot of favour in educational circles at the moment is the notion of fixed versus growth mindsets, and how they might relate to students and learning. Based on the work of Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, the idea of mindset is related to our understanding of where ability comes from. It has recently been seized upon by educators as a tool to explore our knowledge of student achievement, and ways that such achievement might be improved.

"According to Jackie Gerstein, teachers, like the students they teach, can learn to develop a growth mindset, but this requires careful planning by school management."

 

Are we including teachers in this work or is it just something being downloaded by School managers?

Learning and teaching are about action therefore verbs are the appropriate words to bring nouns to life i.e. curriculum.

The Framework presents a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes (a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies) with innovative support systems to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century and beyond.

More time means more money. I urge districts to end the money-saving practice of taking teachers out of the classroom for professional development during the school day.

Mel I thought this was cute but I couldn't go along with the Learn Ninja's second bullet: "take a quick look at the standards in the grades above and below." What do you think about a DEEPER look and pointed, thoughtful planning with teachers on either side of your grade level. That way, I think teachers get at what the standards intend for them to do. Just my two cents. PS: You're an amazing ScoopIteer! I appreciate your work. :)

Parents cannot help their kids with #CommonCore math! Here's why!

Parents cannot help their kids with #CommonCore math! Here's why! | Common Core Topics | Scoop.it

"There is a special type of frustration experienced by parents who can't understand their child's elementary school math homework."

Mel Riddile's curator insight, June 6, 2014 12:01 PM

School leaders need to let parent know that, without special training, they will not be able to help their children with math homework!


Here is why! "A key issue is that the new standards are asking children to understand and be able to explain the structural underpinnings of mathematics reasoning. That's different from decades past, when it was enough to memorize formulas and patterns to achieve the right answer."


The chart above illustrates the dilemma. We were taught to work math problems. Math tests asked "do you know it"--how to work the math problem. Because the Common Core Standards are designed to prepare students to succeed in post-secondary education and training, students need to actually demonstrate that they know how to use the math concepts. We were not asked to do that.


In the second decade of the 21st Century, it is not enough for us to know how to work math problems. We must apply math concepts to real world situations. "Kevin McLeod, who has taught graduate and undergraduate math at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukeesince 1987, suggested the need for stronger math instruction is because many university students arrive needing remedial or high school math courses."


That means we have to 1) know how to work the problems, 2) understand the math concepts we used, 3) apply the math concepts to a unique real-world situation, and 4) explain our reasoning in writing.


Parents may know step 1, but they will need training in order to help their children with steps 2 through 4.
