Review

The audiobook Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck has been in charge of popularizing the terms growth mindset and fixed mindset. Growth mindset is able to develop its skills through effort and consistency, while a fixed mindset is the one that is unwilling to grow, the belief that a person’s traits and characteristics cannot change.

As an example we have the students that after a confusing class of algebra say “I don’t understand algebra” or “It’s too difficult for me” while a growth mindset might say “This class was tough but I can master it if I study hard” or maybe “I need to review that class so I can understand it completely”.

This Audiobook presents a set of advice and tips in order not only to help you understand what mindset is, but also for you to be able to modify your behavior in order to improve your life through the tools that mindset offers you.

  • OSD Admin Team is studying Multipliers LizWiseman ~ It is a great book to follow Mindset by Carol Dweck. The Multiplier is a challenger who defines opportunities and isn’t aftaid to fail.
  • A great talk with Carol Dweck about The Growth Mindset. How to recognize your organization has a fixed mindset culture and how to tackle it through rewarding employees with a growth mindset.
  • I’m reading Mindset by Carol Dweck.....A champion is someone who can raise their level of play when they need to, when the game is on the line they get 3x tougher. Can you say OGUNBOWALE! I’d say she is a great example of that! Remarkable game! Tough ending for the home team!
  • Carol Dweck has explained that we are all a mixture of fixed and growth mindsets and we have to identify our fixed mindset triggers. We focus a lot on math mindsets due to cultural norms, but it applies in other areas also.
  • "You can change your mindset and learn to be more curious than afraid and sustain your interest and effort when things get hard. That challenges are a chance to grow your mental and physical abilities." - Insights from "Mindset" by Carol Dweck
  • Suggest you get them to read “Mindset” by Carol Dweck. Their identity of who they are needs to change into “I am a person who loves to learn and loves the process” as opposed to “I am smart / right”. Keep shining brightly Gary ! Cheeky smiles from Australia
  • I am currently reading "Mindset" by Dr. Carol Dweck and love her confirmation of importance of the growth mindset. She has so many practical ways to cultivate Ss desire to improve and grow versus feeling stuck in the fixed mindset.
  • I'm no expert in elementary education, but I think this is where is needs to start. Yes, there are many things that are certain that can be taught in JK-8, but we must preserve what Carol Dweck calls a growth mindset (learning through effort not fixed traits). But also ... 6/x
