4 Belief Statements Underlying Student Performance

4 Belief Statements Underlying Student Performance | The Inquiring Librarian | Scoop.it

"David Dockterman would like to see more productive failure. But as a lecturer at Harvard’s GSE, Dockterman sees students afraid to blemish a polished transcript. As Scholastic’s chief architect of learning sciences, he sees K-12 students all too familiar with failure and schools that don’t know how to support productive struggle."

The concept of growth mindset is often discussed in schools. Research shows that a students' mindset plays a role in how well they do at school. This post provides "4 belief statements that underlie student performance." Each statement is listed below, but click through to the post to learn more about the meaning behind the statement.

1. “I belong in this academic community.”

2. “My ability and competency grow with effort.”

3. “I can succeed.”

4. “This work has value for me.”

There are a number of links in the article and you may want to read the article located in EdWeek (published in Sept. 2013). This article looks at how our language as teachers impacts each student. Our words are important and we may not be aware of the words we use are impacting our students.

Also consider scrolling down and reading the comment by Tom Vander Ark. He discusses two areas that are forgotten in the discussion of mindset (and he includes grit here also) - the ability to transfer knowledge between content areas (an important component in Common Core) and "domain knowledge and skill." He provides suggestions on what we might try in our classrooms.

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."
