    6. Mindset – Fixed vs. Growth Mindsets are beliefs—beliefs about yourself and your most basic qualities. • People with a fixed mindset tend to believe that traits are fixed qualities. They have a certain amount of intelligence or talent, for example, and nothing can change that. • People with a growth mindset believe these qualities can be developed through dedication and effort.

    7. Examples of Fixed Mindset Thinking “I’m not good at math!” “I am not a good writer.” “My students can’t do this!”

    8. Why does this matter? • Research has shown that students who hold a Growth Mindset perform better than those with a Fixed Mindset, especially under conditions of challenge. (Blackwell, Trzesniewski, & Dweck, 2007) • However, these mindsets themselves are learned, and they can be changed. Adult feedback can influence students’ mindset and performance in powerful ways. (Mueller & Dweck, 1998) • When students are taught that the brain develops and gets smarter with effort and learning, they become motivated in school and perform better. (Blackwell, Trzesniewski, & Dweck, 2007; Good, Aronson, & Inzlicht, 2003)

    9. Fixed Mindset Intelligence is static Growth Mindset Intelligence can be developed

    10. Fixed Mindset Intelligence is static Growth Mindset Intelligence can be developed Obstacles

    11. Fixed Mindset Intelligence is static Growth Mindset Intelligence can be developed Effort

    12. Fixed Mindset Intelligence is static Growth Mindset Intelligence can be developed Criticism

    13. Fixed Mindset Intelligence is static Growth Mindset Intelligence can be developed Success of Others

    14. As a result… Those with a Growth Mindset reach ever-higher levels of achievement. Those with a Fixed Mindset may plateau early and achieve less than their full potential.

    15. Compare and Contrast Use the graphic organizer to compare and contrast growth and fixed mindsets, using your own words

    30. “Praising intelligence, talent, or ability harms kids because it puts them in a fixed mindset. It turns kids away from learning.” -Carol Dweck, PhD

    31. What should we praise? Not intelligence, talent or ability! • “Look, you got an A without really working. You’re really good at math!” • “You did that so quickly and easily. That’s impressive!”

    32. Students Can Develop Growth Mindsets • Answer key: • Growth Mindset Praise statements: • I like the way you tried a lot of different strategies… • You put so much thought into this essay… • That problem was really long and involved. I admire the way… • You did that so quickly that it must have been too easy for you… • Good for you for taking on such a challenging project… • Wow! You got a B. You must have worked really hard at this. In your envelope, you will find statements of praise. Sort the statements into two categories: Fixed Mindset Praise or Growth Mindset Praise

    33. What should we praise? Effort, struggle, persistence despite setbacks • Who had a terrific struggle? • Great persistence! There were so many hard things and you worked your way through them! Strategies, choices, choosing different tasks • Wow, nice strategies. You kept trying different things until it worked! • You chose a nice hard task. You’ll learn a lot!

    34. Mindsets are Learned and Can be Changed • Teach students about how their brain works • Praise carefully • Model a Growth Mindset and nurture a risk-tolerant environment

    35. Model a Growth Mindset Can you hear yourself asking… • Did everyone see that interesting mistake I just made? • Who else has an interesting mistake to share? • Who experienced a terrific struggle?

    36. Nurture a Risk-Tolerant Environment • Use growth-oriented praise and encourage others to do the same • Remind learners that faster isn’t always better • Discourage labels • Encourage learners to assess their own progress • Share and celebrate mistakes that move learning forward

    37. The Power of “YET” “I’m not good at math!” “I am not a good writer.” “My students can’t do this!”
