Mindsets

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.

Discussion

  • Do we as a society believe in a growth mindset? Why or why not?
  • Is this what we were taught? Or how we were taught?
  • For some of us, this is a challenging concept to believe in. Why?

How do we praise our students?

  • What implications does this have for professional development?

First look at Weight-bearing Wall barrier process


1) What could you do (different from current practice) if the barrier is no longer in the way?
2) Identify barriers that prevent you from doing this today.
3) What ways  could you reduce/eliminate barrier?
