GROWTH MINDSET

by Brown

"Let me start by issuing you a challenge: Be the better than you are. Set a goal that seems unattainable, and when you reach it, set another one even higher." -- HERB BROOKS

CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE

Students learn best when the objectives and path to completing the objectives are clear and intentional...Students needed to know their efforts are not in vain and the tasks they are completing each day are building towards a culminating goal.


"Arcy" - 9th ALC Science (fixed mindset) student worked out of ALC by her senior year... Way behind on credits, growth mindset by the time she graduated as a senior. Currently working through college en route to degree....see's the bigger picture.

Miracle - Legs Feed The Wolf

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NOT KNOWING...AND NOT KNOWING YET.

IF YOU THINK YOU CAN OR YOU CAN'T, YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT. - HENRY FORD

NEVER LET THE FEAR OF STRIKING OUT GET IN YOUR WAY. --BABE RUTH

LOOKING AHEAD....

3RD TRIMESTER AP BIOLOGY - PREPARATION FOR THE AP BIOLOGY TEST

-- MOST OF THE TIME THESE STUDENTS HAVE A GREAT MINDSET BUT WHEN CHALLENGED OR 'UNSUCCESSFUL' THEY OFTEN MOVE FROM GROWTH TO FIXED -- TEST TAKING STRATEGIES FOR UNKNOWN QUESTIONS - BIG PICTURE --> IF NO COLLEGE CREDIT -- YOUR EXPERIENCE SETS YOU AHEAD OF OTHERS.

GROWTH OVER YEARS..IMPROVE ENGAGEMENT AND LEARNING

A GREAT PLACE TO START GROWTH MINDSET...ESPECIALLY WITH SOME OF OUR CURRENT 9TH GRADERS!


I WILL BE VERY INTENTIONAL WITH MY 3 SECTIONS THIS COMING TRIMESTER.

1.START TRIMESTER WITH MINDSET QUIZ--STUDENTS NEED TO FIND OUT WHERE THEY ARE MENTALLY.

2. SHOW HOW THEY CAN GROW.

3. EMBED OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH MINDSET LEARNING IN HOMEWORK AND QUIZZES THROUGHOUT TRIMESTER.

4. I HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THESE STUDENTS FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS! REVISIT AND REINFORCE GROWTH MINDSET
