Travel Time

I’m about to hit the road for some much needed R&R and while I’m away I thought I would revive a few old posts for your reading pleasure. Many of you have been with me since the beginning, three years ago this month, but many of you are new friends, and since there are well over 500 posts in the history of this blog, I’m certain you haven’t read them all! Think of it as an extended Throwback Thursday.

I hope you enjoy some of these posts from the past, and I also hope you’re enjoying some R&R of your own.

Dr. Carol Dweck’s research into the topic is fascinating and so important for educators, and really everyone to consider. We all have the capacity to learn, but what propels some while others hold back? Her answer is our mindset, whether we have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.

This video is about ten minutes long, and very informative. I would love to hear your thoughts on it, and on fixed v. growth mindset in general.
