Carole Dweck's Mindset
Using Dweck's work in the classroom
Fixed or Growth?
It is clearly our work in the classroom which drives us. Think of the last student you spent a significant amount of time with trying to change their mindset - their fixed and negative view of themselves as 'useless', 'no good at Maths/English/Science/Art', 'always get into trouble', 'can't be bothered'. These students have already learnt messages about success and failure, and will be even now acting according to their mindset.
