Growth Mindset meets the Dojo Monsters and Dot Day

If you aren't already familiar with the Growth Mindset philosophy or the Class Dojo video series, stop for a moment and consider this: Adorable, short videos. Discussion questions. And a HUGE impact on your students willingness to try. What's not to love?

Growth mindset thinking helps students see that they can always get better and it is worth the effort! It is the fixed mindset that says "I'm just not any good at ___ so why bother". Let the Class Dojo monsters explain to your students in easy-to-understand language how the brain works and why it is worth it to work it!

Dot Day 2016 is this week

Familiar with the book about a student who feels she isn't artistic, so she can't try? She learns to make a dot and start somewhere. Dot Day is a time to introduce the growth mindset idea of not waiting until you are an expert, but knowing that learning is a journey.
