We grow not in comfort. I will begin this short week by sharing the graphic below with my kids in an ongoing effort to create and sustain a growth-mindset culture in my classroom. Next month, I have been asked by the Washington State Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (WSASCD) to be a guest author on their blog, where I will write about this very topic. And while I am certainly no expert on said topic, I believe in earnest that it is a crucial step in the right direction for changing the narrative and making significant change in education. Until then, and beyond, I have a lot to learn about growth mindset. I am not really in my comfort zone, but I’ve learned to embrace that, for it means I am growing. Now if I can get my students to embrace it as well.
Have a terrific Tuesday, all. Please check out the Weekly Wonder if you haven’t had a chance. Weekly Wonder: I wonder if we should fail kids. http://www.letschangeeducation.com/?p=254
