Discussion

IN what areas do you think we have a fixed mindset? or growth mindset?

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.

Examine Teacher Data

Reflection Process (Using process page from planning document, reflect individually first, then develop a team focus.)

  • What does this survey tell us that we didn't know already?
  • What implications does this have for professional development?

Levers discussion

  • How can we make sure our work goes beyond tweaking a structure and impacts instruction and student learning?

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?

First for 9-Month School Year

Now choose two more from the WBW Home page and do the process twice. (May be in groups or one group, depending on planning team size.)

Workplan (Using Workplan tab of the planning document.)

  • Develop Outcome Statements and Activities
  • Apply timelines and who's responsible
  • Data for monitoring and evaluating
  • Quality control
