Helping Students Adopt a Growth Mindset and Maintaining a Growth Mindset Culture
Greetings Teachers and Administrators!
In this, our last blog submission, we will focus on specific ways we can enhance our school-wide growth mindset at Cross Creek.
Summary of Chapter Eight:
Ricci outlines a sequence of learning for students as it relates to growth mindset in ten parts. I have whittled it down to four:
*Basics of the brain (pages 97-122)
*Intro to growth mindset terminology (pages 122-135)
*Teaching optimism (pages 136-137)
*Everyday growth mindset reminders within our school (pages 137-138)
Instructions for both Veteran and Beginning Teachers:
Read Chapter Nine in its entirety (pages 139-144). Click on blog "comments" to answer. Number your answer to correspond with the question.
I believe we must incorporate a growth mindset culture in our classes first and it will naturally impact the school as a whole. For this reason, periodic reminders from administration as well as colleagues will help improve growth mindset expectations.
