  • WORD SORT

    In small groups of 3-4 (no more than 4 to a group!)

    Notice any patterns, similarities, trends - and then sort however your group decides

  • WORD SORT - ANSWERS

    Intelligence is something people are born with that can’t be changed.

    Fixed Mindset

    You are a certain kind of person, and there is not much that can be done to really change that.

    Only a few people will be truly good at sports - you have to be ‘born with it’.

    Math is much easier to learn if you are male or come from a culture who values math.

    Trying new things is stressful for you and so you avoid it.

    Some people are good and kind, and some are not - it’s not often that people change.

    You often get angry when you get negative feedback about your performance.

    You can learn new things, but you can’t really change how intelligent you are.

    You can do things differently, but the important parts of who you are can’t really be changed.

    Truly smart people do not need to try so hard.

  • WORD SORT - ANSWERS

    No matter how intelligent you are, you can always be more intelligent.

    Growth Mindset

    You can always substantially change how intelligent you are

    You can always change basic things about the kind of person you are.

    Musical talent can be learned by anyone.

    The harder you work at something, the better you will be at it.

    No matter what kind of person you are, you can always change substantially.

    You appreciate when people, parents, coaches, teachers give you feedback about your performance.

    All human beings are capable of learning.

    Human beings are basically good, but sometimes, they make terrible decisions.

    An important reason for completing work is because you like to learn new things.

    Person A

    • Celebrates successes quietly

    • Works hard to affect others, without focusing on personal gain or recognition

  • FIXED OR GROWTH MINDSET? Teacher B: • Loves teaching. • Actively involved in most of his

    district’s professional development sessions, but in the classroom, chooses to expend energies in areas he’s most interested in.

    • Has a disposition that ‘he knows best’ because he knows research- based best practices.

    • Is able to work with colleagues, as long as they conform to his ways of teaching and learning.

    • Is perplexed when his evaluations reflect less than perfect rating

    outcome of her work

    • Spends a lot of time re-doing assignments

    • Works well with others, but often has to take more time to process new information

    • Studious, completes all tasks, submits on time

    • Does not like to work in groups, or takes on the bulk of the work when working with others

    • Is scared to fail, so does only the things considered “safe”

  • RECAP Mindset - set of personal beliefs; a way of thinking that influences your behavior and attitude toward yourself and others

    Fixed Mindset - a belief system that suggests that a person has a predetermined amount of intelligence, skills, or talents

    Growth Mindset - a belief system that suggests that one’s intelligence can be grown or developed with persistence, effort, and a focus on learning

    Brain-Based Research suggests that the brain can be taught, wired and rewired when ‘exercised’ - neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to change, adapt, and “rewire” itself throughout our entire life

    Potential - “He is not working toward his full potential”; “We will help him to reach his full potential”; Qualities or Abilities —-> “untapped potential”

  • SO WHAT? WHY DOES IT MATTER?

    - Do we believe that ALL students CAN learn? - … and if we BELIEVE that they can, what do we SAY and DO that speaks

    this message to them so that they can discover their own UNTAPPED POTENTIAL?

    - … and if children “learn what they live”, how SHOULD we MODEL and PRACTICE having a GROWTH MINDSET so that they can LEARN and REPLICATE it?

    - How can we be deliberate in such practice? - We have to THINK about how we’re thinking as it affects our words,

    actions, and ultimately, outcomes… of ourselves AND those around us - our students!

  • OUR REALITY.

    We NEED to think about our own beliefs about learning and intelligence before we can get them to think about theirs.

  • OBJECTIVES We will…

    Know fixed and growth mindset

    Understand how the brain can be trained to think, and how mindset affects perceptions and outcomes

    Be able to distinguish between fixed and growth mindset as we reflect on our own

  • EXIT TICKET

    “When you enter a mindset, you enter a new world. In one world — the world of fixed traits — success is about proving you're smart or talented. Validating yourself. In the other — the world of

    changing qualities — it’s about stretching yourself to learn something new. Developing yourself.”
