Be the Change!

Happy Monday!
I came across an article on Facebook late last night. My youngest was up all night coughing so I  decided to hold him and work. The article was about Mindsets and believing in yourself. We have done quite a bit of work on mindsets and how students can influence their own learning. But this article gave a few other mindsets to consider.

  • Belonging to an academic community- belonging to an intellectual community helps students see mistakes and errors as part of the process in learning
  • Belief in the likelihood of success- students need to believe in their ability
  • The work has meaning and value- student tasks need to be relevant to their lives and interests
  • Belief that abilities and intelligence can grow with effort- focus on the joy of completing tasks and the learning that occurred along the way

I encourage you to read the article or at least parts.
