Mindsets in the Classroom- Chapter 1

Book Study Button

Every once in a while something comes along that changes you….for the better.  Several months ago, my husband introduced me to the research of Carol Dweck.  Dweck is the researcher behind the concept of Growth Mindset…and let me tell you…it rocked my world!  (You can read a previous post about Mindset HERE).  I tore through Dweck’s book and then set about finding out as much as I could about how to introduce this concept to my students….enter the book Mindset in the Classroom.  I was so excited when I found this book and couldn’t wait to go through it with all of my bloggy buddies.  I do hope that you will join us on this amazing journey toward changing the mindsets of our students, staff and community. 

Today, I’m linking up with my bloggy buddies at Hello Sunshine for chapter 1 of our study.  Head on over there to get the reading schedule and link up with us to be entered into a drawing for a gift card!

Chapter 1 is a great website that has FREE resources for teachers to use to introduce and teach students about growth mindset.

I created this little graphic to help talk to people about the differences between the mindsets.  Click on the pic to download it.
