Dweck discovered a host of profound findings about the impact of receiving (perceived) positive and negative praise.

Through her research, psychologists
believe a
growth mindset
is the cornerstone of motivation, productivity and success for every student.
MINDSET {noun} a set of beliefs or a way of thinking that determines one's behaviour, outlook and mental attitude
(the Psychology of Success)
Dealing with failure

Makes you angry and depressed, and want to get even or give up, (TALENT / FIXED mindset)
Makes you want to learn from your mistakes (EFFORT / GROWTH mindset).
Dweck's research has implications whole school - not only for practice but for a rethinking of the feedback and praise we use here at Imagine School Land O Lakes.

Many people simply don't believe that anyone can exceed their potential...
We all have potential - as teachers we have a duty to enable others to maximize theirs... students and staff

"In a
fixed mindset
students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits... their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb.

"In a
growth mindset
students understand their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don't think that everyone's the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it."
- Carol Dweck

Teacher Plan by Setting Objectives

Setting objectives is the process of establishing a direction to guide learning. (Pintrich & Schunk, 2002).

Focus #3: Building literacy through writing reflectively and responsively through looking at student work.

Teacher Feedback based on Effort
“Growth Mindset”

Teacher Feedback based on
“Fixed Mindset”

I noticed you persevered with that
writing assignment even though you
struggled with generating ideas at first.

I observed that you showed creativity
by listing all your ideas for writing – and
even asking friends for ideas.

You are demonstrating responsibility
for your work by making sure you submit
all assignments on time.

I love this writing piece! It is the
best in the class!

You are so creative! It is amazing!

You are so punctual!

Growth Mindset
in your classroom?
