'Growth Mindset' Gaining Traction as School Improvement Strategy

'Growth Mindset' Gaining Traction as School Improvement Strategy | Reading Recovery | Scoop.it
The concept aims to raise academic expectations by teaching students and teachers how to think of intelligence as something that can be improved through effort and experimentation.

 

"It's one thing to say all students can learn, but making them believe it—and do it—can require a 180-degree shift in students' and teachers' sense of themselves and of one another."


Via Mel Riddile, Lynnette Van Dyke

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 12, 2013 5:19 PM

Key points on Mindsets:


  1. Teaching from a "growth mindset" orientation helps us to overcome the "soft bigotry of low expectations"?
  2. "Growth Mindset"—1. seek challenges, 2. learn from mistakes, and 3. keep faith in themselves in the face of failure. 
  3. Students with a growth mindset 1. improve more in academics and other skills, and can even be 2. less aggressive and 3. more socially engaged.
  4. "The thing is, kids don't mind failing," said David Dockterman, Scholastic's chief architect of learning sciences and an adjunct lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. "When kids play video games, they fail 80 percent of the time. They look at failure there as an opportunity to learn."
  5. Teachers often confuse "teaching a growth mindset and exhorting kids to try hard," Ms. Dweck said. "You can't just tell a child to try hard without giving them strategies and supporting their efforts."
  6. Minor changes to student feedback—such as providing improvement-related praise vs. general encouragement—improved student persistence and math achievement, they found.
  7. Praising students' strategies, focus, effort, persistence, and improvement "takes the spotlight off fixed ability and puts it on the process of learning," Ms. Dweck said.
  8. It's important for teachers to go into detail when citing a student's correct answer.

Reading Recovery: Growing a reader one lesson at a time : Columbus Journal | Reading Recovery | Scoop.it
When did you learn how to read? How did it happen – easily, or perhaps with lots of effort (and maybe a patient, skilled teacher)? Many of us take for granted that we are literate.
Kim Mastromartino's insight:

Having used other programs and methods, and seeing the often less-than-impressive results of them, and feeling frustrated as a teacher, I am and will continue to be a believer in Reading Recovery. My year of intensive training to become a Reading Recovery teacher helped me understand that two children can be very confused as readers, but for entirely different reasons.
