Our mindsets exist on a continuum from fixed to growth, and although we’d like to always have a growth mindset, the reality is that we can only be on a journey to a growth mindset. The goal is to recognize fixed mindset elements in ourselves and then reflect on feedback and strategies for how to improve.
The Mindset Assessment is a quick diagnostic tool drawn from research-validated measures for people age 12 and over to use to assess their mindsets. It has been used in many studies to show how mindsets can change, and can be used by you and your students to identify areas in which you can work toward a growth mindset. You will be delivered personalized feedback after you submit the assessment.
Recently there have been some exciting discussions throughout education on the impact of trauma on students. While there is a wealth of research documenting the impact of trauma on a child’s health and ability to learn, there is often a lack of clarity about instructional strategies for teachers. Fortunately, mindset intervention research has consistently targeted those students most in need, with exciting success.
Does what you think about yourself really matter? If you had asked me that question about two years ago, my response would likely have been: “no, not really.” But after two years of going from the negative and stressed-out teenage girl I was my freshman year to the more positive, joyful person I am today, my response is much different. What you think about yourself is the foundation of your perspective, your mindset, and your view of the world.
