Growth Mindset - Post #1

Several years back, my then-school's then-reading specialist (who was amazing beyond comprehension) taught our staff about Mindset, rooted in the amazing work of Carol Dweck. I bought into it (heck, I bought into anything this amazing woman taught us!) and purchased the book. It influenced a lot of my teaching.

Fast forward to this school year...two talented colleagues are co-leading a professional book study on the same book. I am new to the school and it's been wonderful to connect with staff on this topic.

Update: I have another Growth Mindset post that you can get to by clicking {right here}!

I've also purchased this one and am looking forward to digging into it this summer.

And, in getting ready for this post, I found this one, too!

I've set up a Mindset board on Pinterest. Click the screen snip below to head over and check it out!
