Classroom Strategies to Foster a Growth Mindset

Classroom Strategies to Foster a Growth Mindset | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

What are actions teachers can take to help their students develop a growth mindset?

As Professor Carol Dweck -- one of authors of today's guest response and the developer of the term and concept -- has written elsewhere:

Individuals with a fixed mindset believe that their intelligence is simply an inborn trait--they have a certain amount, and that's that. In contrast, individuals with a growth mindset believe that they can develop their intelligence over time.

Carol Dweck has written about mindset, specifically the difference between growth mindset and fixed mindset (and you can search these terms on this Scoop.it). This short (less than 1 minute) video looks at a three letter word and how it helps us see that a student has a growth mindset. Listen and learn.

The Power of Vulnerability


Influential author and speaker Dr Brené Brown tackles the myth that vulnerability is a weakness. Instead, she argues, it is the clearest path to courage and meaningful connection, and has the power to transform the way we engage and educate.


"Our capacity for wholeheartedness can never be greater than our willingness to be brokenhearted." -Dr. Brené Brown


"Empathy fuels connections. Sympathy drives disconnections." -Dr. Brené Brown

In Dr. Brown's message I recognize my many failures :/


I could listen to this over and over to:


  • help me a better parent, spouse and citizen
  • help me discover groups who shame other groups
  • help me recognize patterns of shaming that happen between cultures


Shaming is the starting point in the process of oppression


If you convince yourself that you and your culture is superior AND you convince others by shaming them that they and their culture is inferior - you have the ingredients to start the oppression. Once the oppression has started it can self sustain with no further involvement.

"Can you imagine yourself delivering a lesson with no words in it ? will it work? Well Peterson has an answer.

 

Peterson is a guy who used to have dyslexia when he was young and he did not learn how to read till he was in grade five. As an adult now, he designed some great applications to help teachers teach students without having to say a word. These are basically interactive learning games based on formative feedback. Watch the 8 minutes video to see the revolution Peterson triggered by the use of his free-language teaching approach. Enjoy"

Carol Dweck on developing creative talent | TalentDevelop | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Carol Dweck, a Professor of Psychology at Stanford, writes about attitudes toward giftedness and developing creative talent - for children and adults.

 

She notes, "The word gifted can have a fixed-mindset feel. It suggests that intelligence or talent is simply bestowed upon children through no effort of their own and, by extension that it should flourish through no effort of their own."

Teaching a Growth Mindset

Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports.

In this talk Carol Dweck answers: 


- Where do mindsets come from?
- What is the role of motivation in learning?
- How do mindsets affect students' achievements?
- What can teachers do to encourage students to face challenges rather than be overwhelmed by them?
- Changing the meaning of failure and effort.
