Growth Mindset, Part 3 (from Amanda Herbert)
As a conclusion to the information shared recently about Growth vs. Fixed Mindsets, I would like to suggest a video of a Ted Talk by Eduardo Briceno. There are three main points that come up (along with other interesting information):
1) Recognize and remember that the concept of a growth mindset is not just beneficial but its effectiveness is supported by science.
2) Learn and teach others (our students!!!) how to develop their abilities and strengths. Pass on the conviction that we are in charge of this with our practice and effort.
3) Listen to our fixed mindset voice and talk back to it with a growth mindset - 'I can't do it...YET'. (Remind students of this!)
