September 21-October 12
In this hybrid book study teachers will earn a total of 12 hours (1.2 ceu's) for reading each chapter, responding to discussion prompts online, and sharing application of ideas. You will be given no later than (NLT) dates for completing chapters.
I want to thank Melissa Storms for giving me much needed help with this study. In growth mindset fashion, I had to experience a little failure in order to become a better blogger.
Read chapters one and two, click on "comments" to answer. Number your answers to correspond with the questions. Your application assignment follows (Veteran teachers will have a different assignment than BT teachers). If you have questions feel free to contact me. athetford@edumentality or email@example.com.
Application assignment: BT Teachers
1. Go through the Itty Bitty Book and find at least three protocols that have a growth mindset attitude (elements of persistence, perseverance, effort, etc). List the protocol and briefly explain why you selected it.
Application assignment: Veteran Teachers
1. Identify one student that has fixed mindset tendencies. Assign a pseudonym, describe the student in general terms and cite at least two examples that show his/her mindset. It can be a quote or a situation. Keep observing the student as he/she will continue to be part of your application assignment.
