Transcript of Mindsets

MINDSETS & MOTIVATION On your own Working Together Fixed and Growth Mindsets What have we discovered? Read each statement and decide whether you mostly agree or disagree with it.

1. Your intelligence is something very basic about
you that you can't change much.
2. You can learn new things, but you can't really
change how intelligent you are.
3. No matter how much intelligence you have, you
can always change it quite a bit.
4. You can always substantially change how
intelligent you are. Mindsets
are our beliefs and guides our interpretation of life In pairs you will be assigned one of the sets of questions below:
1. Your intelligence is something very basic about
you that you can't change much.
2. You can learn new things, but you can't really
change how intelligent you are.
OR
3. No matter how much intelligence you have, you
can always change it quite a bit.
4. You can always substantially change how
intelligent you are.

What do the statements tell you about the mindset of a person who agrees with them? One pair working on Q1 and 2 will join with one pair working on Q3 and 4.

Both groups will compare their lists.
Are there any differences in the mindsets?
If so what are they? Example:
You are a shy person, and there is not much that can be done to really change that. A person with a FIXED MINDSET has the belief that:
traits are permanent
not open to learning
cannot change
feel like they are judged
A person with a GROWTH MINDSET has the belief that:
traits are adaptable
open to learning
try new things
are resilient There are two types of mindsets:
Fixed and Growth Objectives:
Explain the concept of mindsets
Describe the impact of mindsets on motivation These mindsets can impact our motivation and how we learn:
Fixed mindset are resistant to challenge and see failure as a threat.
Growth mindsets are open to challenge and see failure as a learning tool.
What messages are being sent to students in the following examples?
"You learned that so quickly! You're so smart!"
"Look at that drawing. Martha, is he the next Picasso or what?"
"You're so brilliant, you got an A without even studying!" "You learn that so quickly! You're so smart!"
If I don't learn something quickly, I'm not smart.
"Look at that drawing. Martha, is he the next Picasso or what?"
I shouldn't try drawing anything hard or they'll see I'm no Picasso.
"You're so brilliant, you got an A without even studying!"
I'd better quit studying or they won't think I'm brilliant. Mindsets, Motivation & Praise "Praising children's intelligence harms their motivation and it harms their performance" (Dweck, 2006, p. 175) So what does this mean for praise?

Fixed mindset praise -
Judges intelligence or talent
Proud of intelligence or talent rather than the effort

Growth mindset praise -
practice, study, persistence and good strategies
admires and appreciates their efforts and choices

Produce a list of praises based on both fixed and growth mindsets. What about failure?

Case Study of Elizabeth.
What would you do if you were Elizabeth's parent/coach/teacher? Leave you with this .... "The great teachers believe in the growth of the intellect and talent, and they are fascinated with the process of learning" (Dweck, 2006, p. 194). "It starts with the growth mindset - about yourself and about children" (Dweck, 2006, p. 202). Discussion Points How would the different mindsets impact students motivation and learning?

What would a teacher/student with a growth or fixed mindset look like?

How as a teacher could you changes a students mindset. Assessment Task 3
