Raising Readers and Writers ~ fixed versus dynamic mindsets ~ nice post by @Jreaderwriter

Raising Readers and Writers ~ fixed versus dynamic mindsets ~ nice post by @Jreaderwriter | Mindset in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Julie Johnson writes: "It breaks my heart at the beginning of the school year when I hear students say, “I am not good at math.” or “I am a bad reader.”  Just as bad is watching students sit in front of a blank sheet of paper, eyes brimming with fear (or sometime tears) telling me that they don’t have anything to write about and they are defeated before they even start.  I know that I have my work cut out for me, but it’s a challenge I relish.  I know that what I say and how I say it makes all the difference in the world.  I know that my first goal with these students is to help them see that yes, those things might be hard right now, but we are going to work together and we are going to learn strategies that will help us tackle problems and make progress.  My goal is for my students to see themselves as people who are ever changing, can reflect and learn from their mistakes, and can move forward no matter what."

Great new talk by Carol Dweck ~ Mindsets: helping students fulfill their potential

Shary Lyssy Marshall's insight:

"Psychologist Carol Dweck of Stanford University delivers the 2013 Walter N. Ridley Lecture at the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education. She titles her talk, “Mindsets: Helping Students Fulfill Their Potential.” She compares students with a “fixed mindset” and those with a “growth mindset,” illustrating how each type of mindset affects learning."

What Mindsets Drive Teacher Effectiveness?

What Mindsets Drive Teacher Effectiveness? | Mindset in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"This view of high-quality teaching requires evaluators to look beyond classroom performance to see the manifestations of effort focused around these five qualities. Like gravitational or electromagnetic fields, these states of mind cannot be observed directly; they are known from their effects. The ball falls from our hand; we label gravity as a cause. Likewise, we label invisible causes in classrooms. We celebrate teacher efficacy when the teacher inspires her students to grow and learn as a result of their hard work together. The invisible force is a growth mind-set. We contrast this with another less effective teacher who complains that the students are not well prepared because the teacher the year before did not prepare them. Although she may not say it directly to the students, it is highly likely the students will sense the frustration. This fixed mind-set blames external forces and limits the teacher's efficacy and ability to interact in proactive ways with children. (Dweck, 2006)."

Want to Succeed? Let Yourself Fail

"We’ve all heard the catch phrases attributed to people we envy for being the most successful:  “failure is not an option”;  “Never settle for anything less than perfect”.  We tend to think of our heroes as magically ascending the ladder of success without any setbacks along the way, but is this really true?  According to what I’ve read this week, no."

Emphasizing effort to empower learning

Emphasizing effort to empower learning | Mindset in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"My wrist one-liner is a good mantra for our schools: Give the effort. Perhaps we should have it inscribed on student desks or chiseled into classroom walls. Why? Because more than anything else, effort influences learning, and authentic learning involves effort. (In fact, students who rarely struggle are probably learning little!)

Several studies suggest a strong correlation between effort (or perseverance or grit or willpower) and achievement — not just academic success but improved life quality beyond graduation day. If this aspect of “character” is so vital, how can we give it more intentional emphasis in education?..."

Carol Dweck | Gift-Ed Connections

"If you are looking for one thing that could make a difference for your gifted child/student this year, you might want to take a look at Carol Dweck’s book Mindset. Carol Dweck is a psychologist at Stanford University and her work has been hailed as one of the greatest breakthroughs in how we think about learning. In a nutshell, she explores two mindsets: the fixed mindset and the growth mindset. On her website she asks us to “Think about your intelligence, talents and personality. Are they just fixed or can you develop them?” How you respond to that question can make all the difference."
