Brainology: Read together using Jigsaw, which is a Reading Apprenticeship practice.



The article discussed “Growth Mindset” versus “Fixed Mindset.” Participants discussed that cultivating a growth mindset would be beneficial to students.

Paul Tough: Connecting the Paul Tough podcast on This American Life to the Dweck article.

Key takeaways:

-The Mindset/belief system makes an impact
-We can move past or barriers
-It’s best to learn growth mindset early but we can start at anytime
-IQ is a fixed , but skills can change
-Focus on process instead of the “right” answer
-Tests test test-taking ability but students don’t know this
-Mentorship is an opportunity to break that cycle; community is another opportunity
