Promoting a growth mindset in the classroom...
BUILD RELATIONSHIPS
Praising effort or specific actions can make students feel that they are in control of their success, and that doing well is less dependent on natural intelligence.







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

Through her research, psychologists
now
believe a
growth mindset
is the cornerstone of motivation, productivity and success for every student.
Students learn by sharing ideas...
THINK-PAIR-SHARE Activity:

1. Organize students in to groups of four.

2. Present a problem to the students.

3. Give them time to think about possible solutions to the problem.

4. Ask the groups to share the solutions with the class.


MINDSET {noun} a set of beliefs or a way of thinking that determines one's behavior, outlook and mental attitude
GROWTH MINDSET
VS.
FIXED MINDSET
(the Psychology of Success)
Dealing with failure

Makes you angry and depressed, and want to get even or give up, (TALENT / FIXED mindset)
THE POWER OF
Conceive it, Believe it, Achieve it.
Learning about students' lives, dreams, and challenges is a key element in motivating students

Discovering students' interests can connect what is being taught in the classroom to their lives.

Developing a growth mindset-ours and theirs-helps students to seek learning, to love learning, and to learn effectively.

No one likes to feel isolated or singled out. Try to create a classroom "culture of contributions."
FIXED Vs. GROWTH MINDSETS

"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


"It's good to talk..."

Three words to remember...
1. Resilient
2. Adventurous
3. Discerning
