Visible Learning and Growth Mindset

VISIBLE LEARNING AND GROWTH MINDSET

In this first week of school for 2017,

we have been concentrating on what it means to be

a visible learner. 

We have also discussed growth mindset

and how we can all change from

a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.

Watch the videos below to give you an idea about what a fixed and growth mindset actually mean.

What are some of the steps you can take to change your thinking?

What are some things you can do to change your thinking

and therefore change your life and your ability to succeed?

Read the fixed and growth mindset words in the chart below.

Do you recognize any comments that you have ever made?

Think about how you can change.

 In class this week we also discussed what we can do to take control

of our actions and behaviors both in and out of the classroom. 

We understand that there are some things that are out of our control.

Yet there are also some things that each of us can control.

Think about what YOU are going to do to change your mindset

and about how YOU can be in control.

How will you respond when confronted with difficult tasks?

What will you say? How will you act? What will you do? What will you think?
