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)."

"A growth mindset is not something you declare, it’s a really difficult journey you take over a long period of time." Carol Dweck.


 


The concept of the growth mindset should be embedded now In mainstream thinking about learning.  This is a useful reminder that it is not simply about announcing that one has a growth mindset, or indeed that we are a growth mindset school.  It is what it says on the tin, a mindset, and needs time, persistence, nurturing etc.

The power of believing that you can improve | Mindset in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, September 20, 2014 5:21 PM

Dweck again, her work when applied at a deep level in schools has the potential to alter the life path of the most disadvantaged learners.

Schools can help these students succeed by promoting, by design and via daily instruction, messages that tell students:

  • Your intelligence is something that can and will develop, with effort, good strategies, and support from this school
  • You have a purpose. You are "doing school" so that you can contribute something to your family and to the world
  • You belong here, in this school; this school is for you
  • We, as your teachers, will set high standards for you, and we will give you what you need to succeed
