Transcript of In-Service #6 Group C: Growth Mindset and Making Growth Transparent

- Students who believe that their abilities can "get stronger like a muscle" are more motivated by failure and more likely to continue to work hard to achieve goals. This can be described as a "growth mindset" or a belief in "effective effort" How might the existence of a Culture of Power affect student's beliefs about their own abilities or their power to achieve their goals?

Why might a "growth mindset" be particularly important for students who may have suffered due to educational inequities? Do your students know your goals for your team and for them as individuals? If so, how do they know?

Do they know how they are doing relative to those goals? If so, how do they know? What best practices did your groups identify for making growth transparent? Effective Effort in our Classrooms Making Growth Transparent
