Fixed vs. Growth Mindset: Turning Intelligence Into Something Useful Sources: Mindset by Carol Dweck: On hold in the library. Also see the image on the next slide and the overview of a “growth” mindset in blue on the slide after the one with a picture of Carol Dweck and her book.
Dr. Carol Dweck
We’re looking to recognize people for contributions that suggest a growth mindset – the idea that intelligence can be developed – and for positive contributions to our school community. The following types of things are what we’re looking to celebrate: Embracing challenges Facing an obstacle and overcoming it Demonstrating concentrated effort Using negative feedback to improve Supporting or embracing the success of someone else Focusing on the process of learning or achieving something Improving Showing concern for others Helping to improve our school community in some way large or small Feel free to be creative with your ideas and the name of the award. For example, you might offer a “Personification of Compassion Award” for someone who has shown extraordinary concern for others or you might go with a more straight-forward “Do Gooder Award” for someone who helped to build a more positive community. The name is obviously not as important as the description of what the person did. The best recognition will be genuine, thoughtful, and specific.
“Adversity gives birth to greatness. The greater the challenges and difficulties we face, the greater opportunity we have to grow and develop as people. A life without adversity, a life of ease and comfort, produces nothing and leaves us with nothing.” Daisaku Ikeda
