Parent Connect: Fixed vs. Growth Mindset

Back by popular demand, this was our second session on growth mindset. This is such a relevant and popular topic that we shared all new information and resources.  Last year's session on mindset can be found here.

We started with a self-assessment. Do you agree or disagree with the following statements.

We shared an overview of Carol Dweck's research on Mindset, summarized in this chart.

Check out this short, amazing video showing what neurogenesis (creating new neural pathways) looks like in the brain.

Next we watched part of this fascinating TEDx Talk from Daniel Coyle, author of The Talent Code.

We discussed reframing our language to be more reflective of growth mindset using these prompts.
