There is no arguing about the fact that the root of all evil is ignorance and the root of all good is knowledge. Wealth, respect, fame – they all spring from knowledge. Perhaps this is the reason why wise men attach so much importance to education.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 13, 2014 7:45 PM

Do you discuss growth mindset with your students? Do you also discuss what a fixed mindset is? In this post Jackie Gerstein provides her insights into these areas, and also talks about the grwoth of what she defines as a "toxic mindset" where a students might think:

  • Mediocre is often good enough for me as long as I get the work done.

We are fortunate that she has also provided a "Personal Accountability and Reflection" series of questions, which is shown in the infographic above, and also listed in the post. Below are two of the questions.

  • Did I work as hard as I could have?
  • Did I regulate my procrastination, distractions, and temptations in order to complete my work?

These are great questions to use with your students. How do you think  your students would answer them? Would they acknowledge how they are working accurately?

A growth mindset isn't just for students — teachers should have one, too

A growth mindset isn't just for students — teachers should have one, too | Perfecting Educational Practice | Scoop.it

"Christina Gil, a former classroom teacher, writes for Edutopia that the self-reflection required to develop a true growth mindset can be difficult and painful, but it can significantly improve a person’s teaching — which is why teachers shouldn’t just foster growth mindset in their students, but also in themselves."

Growth mindset applies not just to students, but to teachers and administrators as well.  We must support all individuals as they develop and grow.
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 2, 2:45 PM
Growth mindset is about an approach to life not another tool for teaching. Teachers can shift away from this tool-approach by looking at growth mindset as a way to develop as a person not get better grades. 
Tina Jameson's curator insight, August 3, 6:47 PM
